• On March 14, Pasadena Unified students joined others across the country in peaceful demonstrations to honor the 17 lives lost at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. They joined survivors in communicating their feelings on the issues of safety and gun control.

    Students participated in age-appropriate dialogue, stood in silence to remember the 17 Parkland students, teachers and school employees, and called on leaders to forge change.  

    The Pasadena Unified graduate profile calls preparing students students to connect classroom learning with local, national, and global issues, and actively engage in having a positive impact on the world around them.

    We would like to thank and recognize students across our district for their leadership and conviction in peacefully voicing their concerns about important national issues. Pasadena Unified students showed us that they are on a positive path to becoming compassionate and strong leaders of tomorrow.
