When the school day ends, students who do not participate in a club or sport have nowhere to go.

Because of this, students should support the SLP Nest, which opened today.

From conception to reality, SLP Nest board members have worked to address concerns that reflect community needs.

Organizers said the Nest will provide healthier food options, a safe place for students to meet and study.

According to Tami Cabrera, the owner of Muddy Paws and one of the founding members of the SLP Nest, the menu will include various nutritious items.

The healthy options will consist of hummus and veggies, vegetable platters, individual fruit trays and sandwich wraps.

This is important since options are limited when it comes to healthy food choices around the high school.

Another way to support the Nest is by studying there as opposed to the high school. This will provide students a safe alternative to studying alone in a hallway.

Underclassmen who do not have their licenses yet will benefit from the gathering place because it is within walking distance of the high school.

In addition, students often find it inconvenient to go home in between activities, so the SLP Nest is an appropriate place for students to congregate and collaborate for group projects.

Although Park strives to provide a welcoming environment, it will be helpful for students to have an additional location where they can be themselves.

For example, the Nest will feature student art and organizers plan to host student performers at events.

Additionally, the SLP Nest provides a place where students can meet each other and branch out to form connections with people they might not otherwise communicate with. This will work to erradicate the distance between different class schedules.

The editorial board believes the Nest’s success lies in the hands of the students and encourages students to take advantage of this opportunity in the community.

The board has done its part, and now it is up to the community to invest in their own city’s future and support the SLP Nest.

Students should consider the positive effects of their support, the impact it will have on the community and the work their peers have done in order to create the SLP Nest.
