Our LHS freshmen don't need to be pampered, let them mingle

  • Published in Letters
To the editor,
I do not understand why Laconia High School Principal Jim McCollum believes the freshmen class members need to be segregated from other students at the high school.
My four children did quite well when they moved from the eighth grade to ninth grade. In fact a couple of them were in a high school with an enrollment much larger than LHS.
These students do not need to be pampered, they need to mingle with other students.
A proposal like he is suggesting for the ninth grade and later on the 10th grade will be costly to taxpayers. And I don't believe anything will be accomplished by it.
