The proposed boundary changes are causing quite a stir in the Elk Grove community. It saddens me that people have such negative perceptions of Harriet Eddy and Laguna Creek. I honestly don’t see what’s so “horrible” about LC. A lot of parents seem to think that attending LC means sentencing their kids to a future filled with poor grades and daily fights. That will only happen if their kids hang out with the wrong crowd. I personally haven’t had such negative experiences in my 3+ years at our school.
The thing I find ironic is that parents have always taught us to “never judge a book by its cover.” Then doesn’t that mean you shouldn’t judge LC? You’ve never attended the school, so how can you accurately place judgment on it? Yes, the school has problems, but so does every other high school.
I just needed to get this off my chest. I’m happy that LC is where I got to experience high school. It’s where I spent the last three years strengthening friendships and finding out who I am. I enjoy the diversity our school provides its students. I’m not bashing any other high school in our area, but I love LC.
Our school sometimes cheers, “Oooh, ahh! You wish you were a Cardinal!” Well, I am.
And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
