I am currently a 12th-grade student at Midd-West High School. I am writing this letter in disapproval of the posts in The Daily Item about my school. I find it to be very embarrassing for my fellow students and me.
While I do not argue with the fact that some unusual activities have been taking place here in the district, I don't appreciate your encouraging of the public to label us "the bad school."
I take pride in standing every morning to salute the American flag among the classmates with whom I've gone through the toughest times. Even though we've had to experience bomb threats and suicide, we strive to help each other every day in both educational and personal endeavors.
I would appreciate your willingness in posting more encouraging articles about Midd-West.
