When I think of all the reasons to support the school bond issue on Tuesday, the one that continues to rise to the top is the difference a new elementary school would mean to the children.
Instead of attending three different attendance centers, children would be in a single elementary school from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. That continuity would provide a wonderful sense of community for not only students but also teachers as they witness the progress of their students from one grade to the next.
Add to this the fact that the new school would be healthier no mold; safer integrated security system; and would provide a better environment for learning, and the decision to vote yes came easily and joyfully.
