THE STORY:

Hi, I am Leilani Traore-Rogers and I just wanted to say a couple of things which might take forever. My school, in my opinion needs computers and other things mainly because of our extension of education. We have some very old computers that are not antique but we are not able to use them. If we get new computers we will not have to rely on our teacher for information that is on the Internet. I understand that books are a great way to “stretch your thinking”, but computers have a different type of knowledge that you can explore deep into. I believe that the computers and other things may not be used for silly things that may be inappropriate for our lesson… Such as games. There is a school near ours and I have been told the parents raised ONE MILLION DOLLARS. That lets me know that by working together, people can create something big… And whatever it is, it is special because it is unique and it used teamwork. To me that school is my, um, ROLE MODEL. Having a role model is important because someone is there, someone you look up to gives you hope. In school our principal Mr.Hoke has a saying “ at P.S.282 we DREAM, BELIEVE, EXCEL, and ACHIEVE. Those 4 words have a strong meaning. Our DREAM is that we have computers and other learning devices that are usable. If we BELIEVE, we will have more hope. We can EXCEL in not giving up. And we can ACHIEVE our dream if we work together. I know I sound like some salesman, but our school really needs this. Our music teacher, Mr.Kafando, made a song about 282:

I am P.S.282

You are P.S.282

I like it in here and I hope that you do too.

Got nothin’ but love to be in school. X2

I might be a president, SOMEDAY!

I might be a surgeon, SOMEDAY!

I might be an astronaut, SOMEDAY!

I might be a teacher, SOMEDAY!

But it all starts at P.S.282

The last part is especially true because with the right education we can achieve our dreams. I am not very good at explaining, but I truly think that all of P.S.282’s awesomeness needs a little more as I like to say “Eh!” because we really need our education. I am not a Goody-Two-Shoes (I am a chatterbox), but my education is what I rely on for my future. If there are eight hundred of you and you each donate a dollar, that’s 800 DOLLARS! That is a LOT of money. And some of you may even donate more. On my mother’s birthday, my mother raised $1,000 for her work Turning Point (She is da’ boss). She just asked the people she knew, a little less than all of you, and boy, she got MONEY! Many people rely on education. I usually feel weird on asking for money, but when it comes to my friends’ education and mine, I just gotta ask...Can you help raise money and donate??? It would be veeeery helpful. We have a lot, but we NEED more things to do about our education. Thank you all for reading this. I am sorry it was so long.



Sincerely, Leilani.

P.S. You guys rock!!!!!
