"History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them."
Martin Luther King Jr.
Sarah Harris, Ali Houselog and Building Rep Elly Oldendorf planned a field trip in April that took 6th graders downtown. They had a civics field trip, where they took the CTA blue line train, learned about pedestrian safety, attended a Cook County Board Meeting, met county officials, and walked around to landmarks throughout the Loop. Each 6th grader was a expert on a different place, and presented to their group members about that landmark’s history and importance. It was an amazing student-led field trip!
Victoria Soto High School had its first ever blood drive on Wednesday, April 4th which was led by our dedicated National Honor Society members and lead adviser Francisco Oliva. We had a total of 88 participants go through the screening process. A total of 62 students and 4 staff members successfully donated a pint of blood. Our school successfully collected 66 pints which will be used for noble causes. Overall, the blood drive was a success and it helped establish a positive culture of service throughout Soto High School.
