To the Editor:

As a junior at Warwick Veterans, I cannot begin to express the feelings about the school closing. My teachers and my friends, you can tell they’re physically and mentally being affected by this. I am not someone who cries easy, nor am I someone who just slacks off in class.

Lately, I have been so preoccupied by this consolidation “plan.” I have never been in a situation like this before, and I just don’t like it. What about everything that Vets has been through, not only as a school but as a family? I refuse to be known as anything else but a Hurricane.

I don’t want to be a Titan, I don’t want to be a Patriot, I’ve had enough of your charts and statistics about things you probably had already mentioned twice. You can tell me I can get a diploma with “Warwick Veterans Memorial High School” on it, but the school you graduate from, is  the school you graduate from and that’s that. Like many, I don’t have a class ring, I don’t have a yearbook, all I have is friends, and if you break us up the way you plan to, we’ll have nothing. I can’t imagine going anywhere else.

This statistic, this dollar sign, this standardized test score has a name, and it’s greed.

After reading this letter I believe this student needs a lesson in english grammer. Maybe she should spend less time complaining about a school closing because the enrollment is so low and more time studying.
