Budget Cuts - Will Adams Be The Same?
Budget cuts affect everyone in the school environment. It is a big disappointment to many students who can’t afford the $100 fee to participate in intramural sports this school year. Traditionally, the only thing a student needed in the past was to be skilled at the sport. In an interview with Mr. Taranto, he explained how there’s a certain air about going to sports games and how the excitement enhances Eagle Pride.
Staff, parents, students, and volunteers are all working together to solve these budget problems. For instance, the library will be open and run by a volunteer every Monday so classes or students can come during their lunchtime. This will definitely have a positive impact on students’ grades, especially since so many students have always depended on the library. Fortunately, partly because of donations, all the students will have the same fieldtrips available to them as promised despite budget cuts. Many schools around the country have been affected more than ours. Many schools have had sports, field trips, and library privileges completely taken away from them. We should be thankful for the opportunities we have.
