    On many occations this year and last i have attended baseball games. Both at the west campus and away games. I continue to be impressed by the students at this school.They have not forgotten the 'magic words' please and thank you. And the real forgotten ones like sir and mam. Although i am only a grand parent of one of the baseball players i am content that josh could not have attended a better high school. Thanks for letting me express my views. Mike moore
