In lieu of a recent student walkout intended to bring attention to school safety, many students made the decision to write letters to express their concerns and ideas to our elected officials. These letters were sent not only to Washington, DC, but also to Carson City. Letters were not sent as a group, but as an individual letters.
I received a letter from Governor Brian Sandoval acknowledging that his office recently received many letters from students that attend Mannion Middle School. Teachers shared this letter with their students today, but I also want to share it with the parents … it is available in PDF format by CLICKING HERE.
I am proud of the many students that wrote letters and I am glad that our Governor has heard the concerns of our students. This letter is an example of democracy, and it will proudly be on display in the main office.
