Mark Frey, school resource officer, stands with Matt Aiello, dean of students, across from the main office, where they normally greet students. “He listens, he doesnt lecture. He is there to listen and he will offer advice. Hes at all the events and hes there as a person who wants to be there; hes got no other agenda,” Aiello said. “He wants to be there for the students, he wants to be there for the staff. He can take a joke and he can give a joke. I think just his demeanor, you see him and I often in the halls and we try to say hi to everybody. He tries to say ‘hi’ to everyone and jokes with everybody. I think he brings a really calming presence to our building.”

Every person has their own opinion regarding America, as well as what it means to be patriotic. “I grew up being taught about the privileges we have as Americans and how there are many communist countries out there where freedoms are limited, especially speech,” Grace Trumbull, a self-described proud American, said. “I guess I’ve always held onto that perspective and not let social media distract from America’s solid foundation, but I certainly think those who don’t realize this as much have let social media and the criticism of America get to them and change their whole perspective.”
