I am a student at Montpelier Middle School and my teacher that tought me for 3 years had passed away almost 2 weeks ago. When we heard that the school board wasn't going to close school for a great teacher's funeral I was mad and many other students and TEACHERS. Me and 2 of my friends decided to make a petition saying that Miss.Alfrey had tought at MMS for 43 years and she gave her time for us students and the least we can do is give one whole day to her. She loved&cared each and everyone of her students and her dog Abbyi. With our petition we had about 190 signitures and I THINK almost all the teachers signed it in our school! I know I can't change it now but I just want to let people know that we care very much about our teacher Miss. Dianna Alfrey. I know I will never forget her!
