The time I have spent at the Aspen Community School (ACS) has been incredible. I have made so many great memories, and I am sad to say that this is my last year. One of the great things this school does is to bring people together.
I am in the eighth grade. I know every kindergarten through seventh-grade student, not just the kids in my grade. I know them all because we have a lot of whole-school activities. Every week the entire school gets together to share our work and our successes. On outdoor education trips, the groups include students from four different grades working together. During our school play, all 127 students have a role, and we are together rehearsing and supporting each other. In fact, all 127 students are on stage for the finale. These experiences make our school like a huge family.
ACS is working to build a new campus. Although I won’t be here next year, I want to support this school, and I hope the rest of our community will find it in their hearts to support our new school by giving to the Aspen Community School campus campaign (http://www.IBelieveACS.org ).
