To Whom It May Concern:
We, the students of Tenafly High School, understand that due to possible budget cuts, some of the 'newer' teachers may be laid off. Although we understand the need to minimize spending in the 2010-2011 school year, we respectfully request that Cristina Cutrone remains a history teacher at Tenafly High School. She's a skilled and effective teacher and we genuinely enjoy her class every day.
As students, we are among the most strongly affected by the teaching staff at the school. However, students in Tenafly High School are not eligable to vote in the upcoming election. We hope our collective voice will be heard through this petition. We, the undersigned, want to recognize the teaching abilities of the talented Cristina Cutrone, and we hope you consider our stance as the teaching staff for the coming year is decided. Losing Cristina Cutrone would be terribly detrimental to the history department as well as all students and future students at Tenafly High School.
