Dear Principal McDow,

RE: Urgent Need to Clean Up

I am writing to inform you of a very disturbing situation which I came across at your school premises recently. It was appalling to note the poor hygiene found at the school canteen when I was waiting at the pickup area last Friday. As the pickup area was located next to the canteen, I could see rubbish strewn everywhere. There was a stench too.

It was about 4 pm; just an hour before the school bell rings. With the break time at 1 pm, I believe there would have been sufficient time to clean up the place before the children come out of their classes. Perhaps the staff is overworked.

Hence, I would like to suggest a community service with parents involved in clean up. I can volunteer my services for this community clean up and can head the committee in this suggested task if you are agreeable to my suggestion.

I believe it will benefit our children to have a clean and healthy environment that is conducive to their studies.

Thank you for your kind consideration.

Yours sincerely

Harold Tomlin

Concerned parent
