Dear People of Kimberley,
Do you know what happened at Lindsay Park School this weekend? TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPENED! (MC, CL). We had a very sad disaster. When we came to school after the weekend to Lindsay Park, we were very sad when we saw that someone had vandalized our greenhouse and outdoor classroom. We have had that happen before. The soccer goalpost was thrown into our outdoor classroom.
Who would do that and be that mean? They broke the doorknob off the greenhouse and we’re having a science fair. We have plants growing in the greenhouse. The grade three’s worked very hard and the grade two’s and I feel very bad and upset (WP, CM, EJ, AJK). It broke my heart (LG, TS).
The outdoor classroom and greenhouse are very special to us. It’s the kindergartens’ first year in Lindsay Park Elementary and I didn’t want them to see what happens sometimes to our school. So whoever did that, why did you do that? What you did hurt a lot of people and Mrs. Driscoll worked so hard to build what you broke (KW, HH, AT, DB, KB, PT, DH, RG, TO). This is not fair. We are trying to make this place better for you (EL).
We all need to work together to stop all the vandalisms. That was not fair. I hope the people that did this feel really bad about what they did to our school (PB).
I know that most of the people in Kimberley are great people, but I could not believe it was just one person who vandalized our greenhouse and outdoor classroom (OF).
The people who are doing this please fess up and stop. We really hate this. You’re blocking your paths to the world and city of Kimberley. You should help the world. We hope this does not happen again (SK).

Dear People of Kimberley,
When I got to school Tuesday morning, I heard that our school had been damaged. The things that you did were break a handle off the greenhouse and put the soccer post in the outdoor classroom. I love our greenhouse and our outdoor classroom. But I do not like how you vandalized our school. (SM)
Did you know that someone put the soccer net into the outdoor classroom? Did you know that I like reading in the outdoor classroom but unfortunately we can’t right now. Did you know I like the greenhouse? We are having a science fair and have plants in the greenhouse and did you know someone tried to break into the greenhouse. I have a question for the vandals. Why did you try to break into the greenhouse? I made me feel awful. (WM)
Someone broke our greenhouse handle and put the goalpost in the outdoor classroom and it damaged a tree. I am very mad and sad. So please, whoever did that, please don’t do it again. (WH)
Did you know that someone tried to break into the greenhouse? They dropped the goal post in the school’s outdoor classroom. Why did you do that? You hurt a tree that was growing. I’m mad, we’re sad! (RT)
When I got to school this morning I heard that the greenhouse door handle was broken and I went to the outdoor classroom and the soccer net was in the outdoor classroom. We went to the outdoor classroom and we talked about vandalism. I thought, the school is important to me. (SF)
When I got to school Tuesday morning, I noticed that the knob on the greenhouse was replaced and a goal post was in the outdoor classroom. Why did you break the greenhouse know, vandalizers? (JP)
On the weekend some people came to our school and vandalized our outdoor classroom and our greenhouse. Our school is having a science fair and we are growing plants and because the vandalizers ripped the doorknob off the greenhouse and if they got in, our plants could have been wrecked and then we would have to regrow them, I am upset that people would try and hurt our school. (LSC)
There was vandalism at our school. They ripped the door handle off the Greenhouse. They pushed the soccer net into the outdoor classroom. I do feel sad that someone would harm the school. (CA)
Did you know someone vandalised our school? Someone broke the greenhouse handle and we had to get a new one. In the outdoor classroom, they put the soccer net in it. I do not feel good. I feel sad that someone did this. (IH)
I feel a little bit scared about the vandalism. I am NOT happy about it. It is like tearing your heart out for Mrs. .D. Search your own heart. (CM)
I got to school Tuesday and found out the greenhouse was broken into and the goalpost was pushed or rolled into the outdoor classroom over the weekend. I made me disappointed that someone did this. (BF)
When I go to school I found out that someone pushed the soccer post into the outdoor classroom. I made me furious. I was very sad. (DL)
I love our greenhouse and our outdoor classroom. This weekend people pushed the goal post into the outdoor classroom. We love to read in the outdoor classroom and now we can’t. Also people broke the greenhouse door handle. Why would people do that? (MG)
We learned that on the weekend some people pushed the goalpost into the outdoor classroom and tried to break into the greenhouse and this morning we had to get a new handle. This makes me sad because my plants that are for the science fair are in the greenhouse. So if you participated in this, why did you do this? (ZR)
Did you know that somebody tried to break into your greenhouse? Did you know that our soccer goal post was rolled into our outdoor classroom? I’m so glad that they didn’t get into our greenhouse. I’m so sad that we can’t go into our outdoor classroom. I think that this happened on Saturday. (AC)
When I go to school the soccer post was gone. I looked in the outdoor classroom. The soccer post was in the outdoor classroom. I was very disappointed and sad. At Choice I went to go and water my plant for the Science Fair. The door to the greenhouse door knob was gone. I was very sad because I love the greenhouse and I love the Outdoor classroom. (MA)
I got to school at 8:38, my friends telling me, “Did you know some kids knocked down the goal post that doesn’t have a net down into the outdoor classroom?” By 9:20, I had seen if to believe it. I had also seen the greenhouse was vandalized too. The school itself didn’t have a scratch though. I am currently worried about my 2014 LPES Science Fair plants. The greenhouse’s handle had been ripped off and destroyed. Mrs. Driscoll is sad. I feel horrible. (DS)
