Eighth-grade students enrolled in the Quail Valley GT Academy recently completed Spanish and History classroom activities that focused on heroism, courage, people of inspiration, and the events of 9/11. Following the activities, the youth led a school-wide initiative to thank area police officers and firefighter rescue teams for their dedication to serving the community.
The students created posters and banners for students and staff to sign. They also designed thank-you cards and wrote poems to express their gratitude to the first responders. Students Alexis Zamora and Simran Rahman presented the thank you cards and posters to Missouri City first responders on behalf of their school.
