To the editor,
My name is Tahlia Hendricks. I’m a junior at Mora High School and I’ve been attending Mora for eight years.
Mora is like my second home. I’m always at school and trying to be involved in as many things as I can. Everyone loves being part of MHS, because of the people and opportunities.
I live in the Isle School District but I choose to commute to MHS because the atmosphere in the school is so great. Teachers love to teach, students love to be there it’s awesome, but it really saddens me sometimes when I look at our school — the actual building itself because the people that fill the building are some of the best people you’ll ever meet.
They say high school is some of the best years of your life and honestly, they really are. You make so many memories throughout high school but it’s so much harder to have a good experience and to learn if your school is in complete disrepair.
The classrooms are either a hundred degrees or they’re 50 degrees there’s no in-between with the temperature, a jacket is a necessity for daily life at Mora. Not only that but there are also things like leaky faucets, dim dreary classrooms, chipping paint and windows that are too old to work that really affect how people look at our school as a whole.
Sure, it’s an old building, and sure it worked just fine back in the day, but now in this day and age it’s old, it’s outdated and it’s downright dangerous.
On top of that, it’s so frustrating when you visit another school for a sporting event or etc. and you see how much nicer that school is compared to our school and you can’t help but think to yourself “how can they afford this and we can’t?”
I mean, come on, we’re MHS the world’s greatest high school. We deserve the world’s best building. Our current and future students 100% deserve the best of the best. So why doesn’t the community want to vote yes and yes?
