The week before Spring Break, every 6th grader was winding down. We were ready for spring. Everybody had just finished a big presentation for Social Studies, and we were ready for the two-week break. Then it happened. The War of the Pond.
When Leah Metelits, Josh Kulak, and Calder Duffy (all 6th graders) first pinned the petition on the bulletin board outside Saku Longshore’s office, murmurs could be heard from fellow 6th graders, such as “Sign the petition!” or “Save the pond!” Some students were confused, wondering, “What’s the pond?” Turns out, the Pond is a small pool of water behind the Cary building. It has resulted in a ridiculous amount of drama.
