Yeah, so I've promised a few people I'd post Gaye-Dawg's letter to the editor that was in last week's paper. I love it, it's a slap in the face to all the people who voted down the referendum!
We would like to apologize for recent events in our community. We would like to apologize for a school administration unwilling to make any serious cuts to itself until held at budgetary gun-point. WE would like to apologize for a community that prefers to punish the aforementioned administration for its stubbornness instead of helping you achieve the well-rounded educatin you deserve. WE would like tp apologize for a state government that has done litle aid rural area education, and a federal government that forces pointless tests down your throats, wasting time and money.
We are all missing the guillotine blade, but hear it rising behind us. AS we all set out on whatever paths we will take away from this high school, we are saddened to see it come into such dire straits. Teachers will most likely leave, class sizes will most likely grow, and some of the more sparsely populated--and most valuable--classes will most likely disappear. Sports across the board will probably be cut, extra-curricular activities like FBLA and yearbook will (at the very least) have their budgets tightened, and the music department may very well never see another Festival or Solo and Ensemble competition. Outside organizations will probably soon spring up to find the activties most dear to the community, but will it be in time for you? Probably not.
We would like to apologize for a school system that is unable to fund itself, despite being nestled in one of the riches countries in the world. WE would like to apologize for all of the experiences that we have enjoyed over our years in school that you will never know.
Philly High School Seniors
I cannot wait until I graduate so I can leave all the stress behind. This year's seniors are lucky to be getting out now.
I've been thinking a lot about the thing Mrs. Mollman asked me to write, but I still haven't physically started it yet. Maybe I should.
I'm like this close to getting Shop Buddy to joining the dance team. Now Beaver said that he'll only join if Shop Buddy does.
There has been a request to change Spider Web's name to Batman's Bitch. Trust me, that one actually fits a lot better. If you've ever heard his stories you'd understand why.
