I am writing for the students at Strawberry Park Elementary School. Plenty of the kids at our school are very sad that our great principal, Mark MacHale, is leaving us for a new job. All the kids will not like school if Mr. MacHale leaves. He made kids who didn't like school like school.
He just had a way of making learning fun, like getting prizes for working hard in class or helping us with a subject and adding neat things in it to make it easier or more fun, and giving us ideas to think about. He would play with us at recess and keep us as safe as he can. I could never imagine Mr. MacHale leaving in second grade.
Until now, my life was perfect. So please put this article in the paper so the community can see how the Strawberry Park students feel.
