We are 5th grade students about to go into 6th!!!!! We should go to middle school! We are mature enough, and responsibile enough! some of us might not be, but that means that those should be held back, because that is not fair to the responsible ones!! We belong in somewhere where we are treated like 6th graders not pre-k's! We belong in BCMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
