A note from a 7th graders,
"Dear Bloger (sic),
My teacher at hamburg middle school lets us be friends with her on her Facebook. My mom only lets me go on Facebook when she is in the room with me next to our iPad. Today we saw this picture of our principle (sic) and some of my teachers. My mom and her friends drink wine and I know that adults if they are 21 can drink alcohol but a few of the teachers in this picture are drinking and I don't think thats a good idea as role models for us students. When I go to school next week and see these teachers and if I ask them if they were drinking in a picture in Mrs Sperrys Facebook they might get mad at me and send me to see the Principle, who was written about last year in the newspaper that she was doing bad things with our Superintendent. We are told at school about alcohol and drugs and I know some of my friends have tried beer, and now that our teachers who teach us the bad things about alcohol are on Facebook with it I am confused. I want to be a good kid and do what is right but there is so much pressure from some kids to drink and now I see my teachers with alcohol making it seem cool or something like that. I wonder why the adults can do bad things and if us kids did we have to go to detention or get kicked out. One of my friends called our Principle a liar, and he got kicked out school for good and has not come back. He was right about the lies and now I am wondering if its OK for adults to say one thing and do another. I won't give you my name because I will go to the Principles office, and might not be able to stay in school."
