Do you want….
…..middle school sports reinstated for all of our middle schools?
….the instrumental music program to start in grade 6 so all of our students can learn to play an instrument?
…. athletic trainers to be available to ensure the health and safety of our sports teams?
….new furniture for our students?
….improved building maintenance and improvements to our 25 school buildings?
….a teacher assistant for a few more hours a day so we have an extra pair of hands to help with supervision at recess and the cafeteria as well as extra pair of hands in the classroom.
….some extra assistance as the two high schools to prepare for their accreditation process which supports teaching and learning at both high schools?
What are you doing on Tuesday evening, April 28th at 6:30 pm? Please join the administration as we present our budget request to the Finance Committee for their consideration. They will take public comments and questions prior to the school administration’s presentation. If you want to have the following programs and activities, you need to be in the audience and you need to speak up.
I am respectfully asking you to come out, join the administration, as our budget proposal is discussed by the Finance Committee of the City Council. The additional $300,000 that the Mayor has recommended in his budget will not provide middle school sports, the enhanced music program, support in the form of athletic trainers, better furniture, and additional supports for the elementary and secondary schools. In fact, if the Mayor’s budget is adopted as proposed, the School Committee will have to make cuts.
As I have attended all kinds of school events across this city in the past four months, I have clearly heard parents and families wishes for their children. This school administration and School committee wants the same.
Let our city leaders know what you want for your child and for our students.
Remember, the meeting is on Tuesday, April 28, 2015-at 6:30 p.m. in the Cranston HS East Auditorium located at 899 Park Ave.
