This week, over three-quarters of our Middle School population joined the TextLess Live More Campaign. Begun at Milton Academy three years ago in honor and memory of Milton Academy graduate Merritt Levitan, TextLess Live More is a student-led, national campaign that endeavors to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. Ultimately, through legislation, the TextLess campaign aims to end the deadly combination of getting behind the wheel and texting and/or streaming. At the same time, the campaign emphasizes and encourages people, particularly young people, to use technology in a mindful manner.
Grade 8 students, led by Corey and Malia, have brought this important effort to our Middle School.
