    For the first time in Palmer Trinity School history, we have held a mock presidential election. Headmaster Patrick Roberts said that he is curious to see who the students will vote for in this mock election. The choices were of course Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, but also other candidates such as Gary Johnson, Darrell Castle, Jill Stein, Rocky de la Fuente, and write ins. At the end of the school day, they announced announce the results. I was quite surprised by the results. A total of 55% of the votes went to Hillary Clinton. Followed by Donald Trump with 31%. The reason I’m surprised about the results is because I would think Donald Trump would win by a large margin given that almost every single person I asked voted for Trump, but many people are saying that the people who voted for Hillary are the prejudice people. I think that that doesn’t matter and it’s whatever you believe in. If you’re a republican, then you’re a republican and if you’re a democrat, then you’re a democrat. In conclusion, it was a great idea to do a mock election and I could understand why Mr. Roberts would be curious to find out who the winner would be.

    Wearing Shirts Backwards For A Cause

     On Monday, October 17,2016, Palmer Trinity upper school students organized a “peaceful protest for body positive uniform policies for all students.” This all began due to the stricter uniform policies that have been implemented  this year. Palmer has usually been known to have a very lenient dress code, and students throughout school were expressing their discontent with the stricter policies by turning their polos backward. The amount of students participating eventually caught the attention of the administration.

     After the peaceful protest concluded, Mrs. Bodie and Mr. Chapman agreed to hold a meeting to discuss dress code rules directly with students.. In the meeting, students were able to voice their concerns and opinions. This protest was spontaneous but it was successful and showed how students can come together to make their voices heard.
