I’ve found a lot of supportive people on myspace that are following our story and some have asked where they can send letters. I love this idea so for anyone who is interested, here is the information I have been sending out.

The response to my son’s story has been amazing. We appreciate every email that gives us support and encouragement.
A few of you have asked where to send letters protesting the school district’s attitude and policy. Here is the mailing address for NISD. The elementary school uses the same one.
16227 Highway 36 South
Post Office Box 412
Needville, Texas 77461
Curtis Rhodes is the superintendant and the person we have been dealing with directly. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Jeanna Sniffin is the Elementary school principal who originally told me no. Her email address is email@example.com
The board members and their email addresses are:
Jim Kocian – President
Mark Wendt – Vice President
Joseph Anderson – Secretary
Mike Raska – Asst.
The board members information was found here:
I would love to see what you all write and post copies in my blogs whenever possible. Try to keep the insults and talking poorly about people’s mothers to a minimum but please say what you feel.
If you are offended by this gross abuse of civil rights then please write and tell them. Its not just for my son, its for any child that may not fit their narrow standards of required appearance.
My son will benefit as well as any other future child in that district that dares to look different.
My son’s name is Adriel. By the time this is over it will be a name they never forget and wish they had never heard.
If you are forwarding this to someone outside of myspace, give them the link to my public blog where anyone can read all the details of our fight.
