Silas students folded 17 large white paper cranes to represent the 17 people who died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Florida. They then folded hundreds of rainbow-colored paper cranes to represent the hope that they have for a future filled with peace rather than violence.

Silas students will have a chance to win a large crane or a string of three small cranes by purchasing raffle tickets during lunch periods next month. All proceeds will be donated to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Library.
