  • I LOVE MY SCHOOL IM IN 4TH GRADE AND IM DOING GREAT. MY TEACHERS AND PRINCIPLES ARE THE BEST. MY PRINCIPLE MS COLON HAS CHANGED ALOT OF MATTERS IN MY SCHOOL FOR THE BETTER EVER SINCE SHE CAME TO OUR SCHOOL IT HAS BEEN BETTER IN EVERY WAY. THE ONLY THING I DISLIKE IS THE TIME WE START THEY SHOULD GIVE US AT LEAST UNTIL 8:30 BEFORE THEY MARK US LATE IS NOT FAIR AT ALL. I GET THEIR ONTIME BUT BECAUSE I MAKE SURE MY SISTER AND BROTHER ARE IN CLASS AND ARE OK, I GET IN TROUBLE BECAUSE I HAVE TO BE IN CLASS BEFORE 8:15. THATS THE ONLY THING I DON'T LIKE ABOUT MY SCHOOL. IT'S NOT FAIR AND THEY SHOULD CHANGE OUR HOURS BACK TO THEY WERE 8:15 - 2:20 MY LITTLE SISTER AND BROTHER ARE IMPORTANT TO ME TO ASWELL. JUST ASMUCH AS MY GRADES MEAN TO ME.
