My expressed opinion of the bond for the school board to renew the schools is: the schools may have considered the buildings themselves, but my major concerns are the schools supplies.
I, being a member of Sequim High School, can personally say that my backpack weighs at least 20 pounds. This is with paper, a binder and one textbook.
When you consider that most are carrying three, this number could easily be 40 pounds or more. The amount of weight we carry is almost paining.
With a second set of classroom books, I feel that children would be more able to learn and to be more prepared for the day itself.
Thanks for the consideration.
