- St. Christopher's School
Cancel School on Thursday, Febuary 19th
We the Students of St. Christopher's High School, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Petition to Cancel School.
Four Score and Seven years ago plus four score and almost seven years, we were ravaged by one of the worst snow storms in the history of Richmond, Virginia that coated the entire city in blankets of oppressive white snow. This caused great emotional distress throughout the various Richmond communities, including our very own, inclusive community of St. Christopher's School. On top of the emotional toll and the physical taxation of plowing our own driveways and lawns, we now are facing the great toils of sub-zero temperatures. I speak on behalf of the people of STC when I say that I don't want to end up frozen to my desk in AP Stats.
Following a very productive string of days off, where one spent his or her days studying by the fire with a warm cup of hot cocoa, a harsh toss back in to the reality of eternal damnation that is school will prove unfathomably difficult. At the very least, allow the students time to gather their emotions for two measly hours in the morning, if it is even possible to do so in such a short span of time.
We appreciate your consideration, and hope that you have reevaluated your decision to the fullest of your abilities.

P.S. a quote from an emotionally tormented Senior... "We can't all be scholars, but we can all crash on the way to campus"
