Shannon Warner makes his concerns heard

When Otho E Stuart Middle School 8th grader Shannon Warner felt 27J missed the mark by not calling for a snow day on Jan. 26, he took his concerns to the very top. Shannon penned a letter and sent it straight to the CEO — Dr. Chris Fiedler — the district superintendent. "I was impressed with Shannon's passion and his initiative to make his voice heard," Fiedler said.
Fiedler met with Shannon who sported a suit and tie for the Zoom meeting. Fiedler explained the factors considered for a snow day. Shannon explained the students' perspective. Both learned from the other and now have greater perspective because a student took the initiative. #IBelievein27JSchools
