  • so i went to penrose and it is the best school. well not a lot of parents like it but i bet it if you asked every kid that was there in the years of 2010-2011 they would all say they never want to leave. especially the kids in miss.mihalkos class. she was the best teacher ever and i will miss her greatly. but that was the best fifth grade year ever! so people please think positively about the school so we can get a higher grade than a D. that's a really bad grade and i got better grades than that. it is a good environment for kids to learn so please don't shut down our school!
