  • Hi, my name is john coleman.
    Me and some other high school stundents/graduate came out with this amazing book titled, Expressiion of the soul/ Inside the mind of a poet. We were given a chanchalleng to write it in 25 days and we did it.We wrote the book because we wanted to break down stereo type and the way adults looks at the youth. We also wrote the book because we wantted to go on a anual college tour. We watted to inform the youth that every thing do not have to be so nagative about us. So we brought something posititve to the table. We also have a new book coming out titled "I don't want to grow up.
    We just want to give them a backround of what you can do in 25 days also to tell them how it change our life's a little and what you can do. Thank you for letting write this e-mail and I hope to hear from you soon

    Thank you

  • I think that it's a great school. The principal and assistant principal are visible, and out on the playground every morning. The teachers are very concern and keep parents posted on what's going on.
