KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- Students at Mazama High School are showing their support for the victims of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, but they're not doing it in quite the same way other schools are.
Members of the Student Council and Kindness Club helped organize an assembly focused on positivity and unity.
Shaina Higuera, Senior, said the school's Vice Principal reached out to Student Council about possibly doing something different than a walkout.
"When Mr. Rose came to us and said this is what schools are doing and he suggested that maybe we kind of go away from that tradition that other schools are doing," Higuera said.
She said she and other students liked the idea of an assembly inspired by kindness and positivity.
The assembly had a slide show made up of pictures and facts of the 17 students who lost their lives during the shooting Feb. 14.
Taylor Morrison, Sophomore and member of the Kindness Club, said it's a way to encourage students to reach out to each other.
"I think it's really important that students in the world and especially in America right now know that they're not alone," Morrison said.
Morrison said students started an "appreciation station" in a classroom to give students and staff the chance to write a card to anyone they want to know they care about.
After the assembly, students held up signs to spell out "MHS Supports Parkland." They took a picture of the entire school, which they will sign and send down to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
