Fort Support week kicked off today with a speech from Principal Scott Moore after the pledge of allegiance. This week is designed to show support for Fort Osage students.

“Our goal this week is to celebrate an environment of responsible, respectful, healthy and caring Fort Family members,” Principal Moore said in a statement read over the intercom at the beginning of first period.

At lunch today there were tables set up with banners and markers for the school to give positive messages. Then the posters were hung up for students to view. This week is to bring us closer together as a family.

“When I [wrote] the messages I wrote, and when somebody reads the message, it’ll give them a reminder that their lives matter,” junior KeiMonie Madison said. “With you being here, it gives a difference. I feel like I’m encouraging other people to come up here and keep pushing through.”  

Principal Moore stated that the reason the posters were being hung around the building is so that members of the Fort Family who may be having a bad day can look at these messages to remind them of how important they are. “Ohana” means family in Hawaiian. Family means nobody gets left behind.

“It feels good giving people the reason they wake up every morning,” junior Jameshia Nettles said. “I took part to show people I care. I may not have a connection to this week but this week is to show support.”

The week continues with Semicolon day on Tuesday, Celebrate Our Differences day is on Wednesday, Thursday is Pay if Forward day and Friday is Fort Pride Day.

“Students, I challenge you to be the best that you can be,” Principal Moore stated in his speech over the intercom this morning. “Not just for yourself but for other students that share the same roof at Fort Osage High School. We trust you, we appreciate you, and this week, we want to support you all.”
