Page 1Dear Archbishop Cordileone,  Please don’t close St. Mary’s.  We like the playground and the preschooler like to play here.  Think if you were us, you would cry.  Friendship is more important than anything.  I know you want money but think if Jesus were here.  He would not want you to close the school.  Because St. Mary’s helps us learn a lot.

Dear Archbishop Cordileone, I want to make new friends.  And please don’t close our school.  I love this school!  I came here from China and I didn’t know any English.  Now I know a lot.  We all like P.E.  We all like Mrs. Martin.  Me, Zoe, Otto, Ellen, Devon, Symona, Sophie all like the school.

Friendship is more important than money. I want to go to school until I graduate. Because St. Mary’s helps Chinese people learn English and also don’t forget.
