President of PHS’ Young Americans for Freedom club, in a letter to the editor, addresses a “few small issues” he had with the recent eSomethin article.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Congratulations and thank you on a job well done. I am so happy to see the tradition of the Somethin continue. I look forward to future issues. Gretchen Downs Vice President, Perrysburg Board of Education Submit a letter to editor What do you think?
LETTER TO THE EDITOR To the voters of the Perrysburg community, Perrysburg is a special place. It is special because of its geography, its history, its sense of pride. Our people bring diverse talents yet work in harmony to create a community. The cornerstone of our community is our school system; it is integral to Perrysburg pride. Perrysburg Schools is who we are. Perrysburg’s music and theatre program is one of our crown jewels — a program so dynamic and so accomplished that we regularly are selected as a top 100 music program in the nation. Our students learn vocal music from kindergarten through grade 12, strings from grades 5 through 12 and band from grades six through 12. Music is a key component of any quality education. Music supports all subjects ; music connects the senses to the intellect. Music is a language. It requires students to interpret, to interact, to perform. Music is in peril if our levy does not pass. Vocal music 6-12 will likely lose directors. Vocal, Orchestra, Band and Theatre electives will likely be severely cut back. One of Perrysburg’s greatest accomplishments, one of our stunning successes, risks being less than ordinary. And with that loss will go opportunity. Opportunity cannot knock if there is no door. What do you think?
Kudos to eSomethin staff Dear eSomethin’ staff, Great job!! Last spring when I was forced to make the difficult decision to not offer a newspaper class I had great faith that the Somethin’ would be re-born. You have far outshone my expectations. Many thanks to the Blade, especially Mr. Murray and to Mr. Fry, for believing in the pursuit of journalism and journalists. Well done, I can’t wait for the updates. I may even need to ask Miss Nancy for some advice!! Dr. Michael Short Principal Perrysburg High School Submit a letter to editor What do you think?
