My name is Adriana Frasier, and I go to Wy'east Middle School in Odell, and am in 8th grade. This letter is in regards to the recent budget cuts at our school. Myself and all of the other kids want our field trips back. These ports teams get buses to go to their games, but the school choir has no buses for any field trips. Our 8th grade choir alone has 80 or more kids in it, in volleyball for eighth grade there were about 20 girls. There are a lot less people in sports than in choir, art and drama. the whole school has to hire buses to go with us on the fields trips but the sports have all the buses that they need to have to go to their games. However, I still think sports are important, and volleyball rocks. This budget cut is not just affecting the eighth graders; the sixth grade does not get to go to the annual ski trip and seventh grade cannot go to the choir's Best in the Northwest contest, without outside funding. The kids at Wy'east want their field trips back.
