grayson poulson started this petition to All Saints' Student Body

My goal is to come together respectfully as a class and fight for a change in our school for the 2019-2020 school year. Many students seem to be unhappy with the lack of fun aspects on our campus such as lack of special senior privileges and an all academic environment in high school. This upcoming year is our last year together before heading into adulthood, and I strongly believe we should be advocating for ourselves if we want to see some changes for a more enjoyable senior year. This is in no way intended to be a riot against our administration, rather a petition in order to unite our student body to respectfully accomplish a common goal. This school has many great aspects to it, however there are changes that need to take place.We can accomplish our goals as a class one step at a time. Please consider joining in to make this an awesome senior year.

"Young people have the right to freedom of assembly and to be active participants in their own education. This includes the right of students to form a club where they can meet with others who share their interests. Unfortunately, however, some schools attempt to curtail the rights of young people by banning certain clubs. Often this is done illegally, even when school authorities attempt to give practical reasons for preventing students from meeting."

"The First Amendment ensures that students cannot be punished for exercising free speech rights, even if school administrators don’t approve of what they are saying. Unfortunately, where legal protections are weak, schools are threatening student’s speech – and their privacy – by requiring them to reveal the contents of their social media accounts, cell phones, laptops, and other personal technologies."
