Alec Boyd started this petition to Frances Harper Junior Highschool

The freshman portfolio is a pointless project that is disliked by Harper 9th Graders and is not important in any way. This assignment however has an impact on the grade for most of your classes and students that do not participate are excluded from the freshman trip. All other schools in the district do not do the freshman portfolio and they all go on the freshman trip. The freshman portfolio has contributed greatly to the stress of my classmates when combined with other end of the year projects and is hated by the majority of ninth graders I know.

There is no good reason to do the freshman portfolio:

  • It is unnecessarily stressful for students                                                   
  • It does not contribute anything to our life skills or knowledge              
  • It is disliked by most students                                                       
  • It is unavoidable                                                                     
  • It can negatively affect your grade                                 
  • It can exclude students from an enjoyable end of year trip                
  • It is not a good reflection - in fact it is really cheesy and not taken seriously by most students
