ROSELLE, NJ - Students at Abraham Clark H.S. took part in the national walk-out on Wednesday afternoon, taking a stand against gun violence and to show their support for the students and the families of the Parkland shooting that killed 17 high school students.

High school Principal Rashon Mickens says that his school made it a teachable moment and let the student government leaders take the lead and run the entire event. 

After a quick meeting in the school's auditorium, the entire student body walked to the park in the back of the school building carrying signs that called for an end to the violence in the schools and asking for better gun control.

To end out the event, a moment of silence was given while a student performed TAPS. 

Video highlights of the event, along with interviews with school officials and students can be viewed below.
