Re "San Juan may close aging Sylvan Middle School" (B1, March 16): I have had the privilege of being the Library Media Technician at Sylvan Middle School for the last 16 years. While Sylvan's campus is in need of major repairs, Sylvan is a strong, exciting school where the staff strives to ensure every student will learn.

We stand behind our mission statement 100 percent: As a creative and innovative community, Sylvan's mission is to inspire and prepare each student to be an independent critical thinker and responsible citizen by providing challenging academic instruction and integrating 21st century skills within a collaborative, supportive and nurturing environment.
