  • I think if us students stick together so that we can make a change in this school so that we can prove to the staff and others that were made of something and that were not the people they think we are so before you choose not to let your child here think about the changes Coolidge Middle School can make. I'm a student here I like this school but let me tell you something being on lock down may not be fun but it teaches us students a lesson to do what were told to do ,not to what we want to do.I like this school for how it is because the staff treats us how we're supposed to be treated. So who cares if people negative comment on this school ,they do it because that's how they think but it is what you think ? So unstead of listening to what people say find out yourselves because maybe one day us students can make a change in the school. So think about it. It's your choice.
    Sincerely,
    Lashawndra Williams
