I think John Wash is a great place. I know I'm just a 2nd grader, but John Wash is the best place. It may be my opinion you don't have to agree with me though. John Wash is a really hard working school! My teacher Mrs. Barton is the best, she teaches us a lot of things! Learning is amazing. John Wash is a place where you meet kind, funny nice friends around the blacktop/playground! John wash deserves it for being a really hard working school!
