Thank you for answering the last few comments/questions with patience and grace. I understand that this must be a particularly trying time for the Shenendehowa administration. I wonder why some students are so offended by student opinion (disregarding the profanity, which is, understandably, prohibited in a school setting). If they wanted to showcase support for the president, they had as much right as the other students to attend the art show. The banner said “draw on me”, did it not? It seems that many of the critics out there right now are receiving their “information” (dare I say “alternative facts”?) from biased news sources and do not truly grasp the reality of the situation. I’d also like to commend Shenendehowa teachers and staff for their willingness to face controversy and contradict false accusations. It’s a shame that people would generalize you as a bunch of “left leaning…liberal[s].” A public school district being tolerant of differing student opinions, races, religions, and genders? A public school district being tolerant…of the general public? What a concept. If Shen comes off as “left minded” for allowing students to express themselves, then it says just as much about the conservative ideology ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. In any case, thank you to the Shenendehowa staff and administration for another great school year!
