PROTECT OUR SCHOOL

coolcartoonistworld:

There might be a new private school built. But if they do they’ll take away extracurricular classes. That sucks for all of us especially me. We have cool things at our school like ceramics, music tech, tech, robotics, art, fun sports and a whole lot more. I’m in accelerated art and I can’t imagine not being in it for the rest of the school year. The teachers are worried too. #ProtectMySchool #PKMS
