Dear Parents,
After the state funding allocations for our hourly program were released and the district came up with their budget for our program, our site's budget was CUT by one third. Furthermore, the governor will be cutting over 4 billion dollars for education which will result in a 10% cut in our district. This is disappointing but I have done everything possible to make cuts without losing our Monday - Thursday program. As a result, we will need to make a couple adjustments to meet our new budget. First, we will have charge a small fee for some of the enrichment classes that we provide. For example, Guitar, Drumming, Ceramics, Introduction to Theater, and Piano. In addition, we will need to ask for a donation of $110 to cover the second half of the year starting in January. Thank you for your understanding and support for this valuable program.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
