Not only is it a tradition for many of us that we'd like to continue for our children, but being a Phoenix Pirate elicits a feeling of pride and unity (despite what the district office claims). We can't allow them to take that away from us, our chidlren, and our community. Phoenix High made us the people we are today. Besides, the cost of this project is taking away from the education of our children and removing the focus that SHOULD be on our children, the current students at Talent Middle School and Phoenix High School. Focus on our families and our children, not the name. Please.
