My name is Katie Swartz. I will be a sophomore at Lake High School this upcoming school year. I am extremely involved with our school. I play multiple sports and am more than involved with the music department which is near and dear to my heart. However, I am part of a group called Students in Action, which a group that fellow letter writer Byron Swartz is part of. I would have to say, Students in Action is by far the one I favor. Getting to be involved with so many people is a great experience. I love our school very much and would really like to see the levy pass.
Seeing Byron's letter several weeks ago, made me realize that it's time for the student body at Lake to start getting involved with this campaign. I would like to see our school's levy pass because students need extracurricular activities to do something positive by supporting their school. I love being involved with extracurricular activities because I have a purpose in our school. Whether it is playing sports or volunteering, I have a role in my school and community. Without our levy passing, some of those extracurricular activities will be taken away from the students of Lake High School, taking away our ability to spread goodness in this area.
Another wonderful part of the Lake district, is the teachers. They are the ones who impact us. I agree with Byron and would also like to emphasize that with support for our levy, teachers will still have jobs, we can still have good class sizes, and our teachers can continue to make our students and future generations better each day.
I would like to ask for your support of Lake's levy for the future students. Lake schools have helped me grow as a person in performing and volunteering. So please consider helping the children of our community grow as people like I did! My fellow student from several weeks ago hit the nail perfectly when he said "Remember: we're excellent together!"
Remember the students this August!
