Can 3 words cause so much commotion?

Apparently they can, especially when they’re “WTF”. North Pointe Prep, a valley school near 43rd Avenue and Peoria, started selling school spirit shirts. But what’s wrong with that?

The t-shirt says, “WTF” but underneath it says “We’re the Falcons”. Some students who go to North Pointe Prep say that they love the shirt and its humor, but some disagree and say that the school is sending the wrong message to the community. The principal of this school had designed the shirt but has not said anything when questioned why he/she picked that particular slogan, but is receiving heat from parents who don’t like the design.

Since Hillcrest Middle School has the same mascot, the falcons, I asked a few students around campus and some teachers what they thought about this topic and if they would buy a shirt like that. “No, I would not. I would buy a shirt that says, ‘Falcons’ instead of ‘WTF’ on it,” says Izabela Da Silva, a student at Hillcrest. “I think it is not proper for school, but I see the humor in the slogan,” says Mr. Herold. What do you think about this? Would you buy this shirt or let your child wear it? Comment what you think below.
