In classrooms at the elementary level every day we encourage our children to be caring citizens that work on problems in cooperative ways as they are learning and working. We encourage them to treat each other respectfully even when they are angry or feel they have been wronged. We discourage unnecessary blame.

As any group works together, the basic understanding of mutual respect and cooperation allows the agenda to move forward in an effective manner. We have been frustrated by the actions of politicians and people in the media that are setting poor examples for our young citizens.

Help us to progress as a school district by voting for those who understand the schools, not just the budget. Please vote for people who have an interest in students not in condemning those who work with them. As teachers we appreciate our community and those who support our work. Please continue to support us all by being an informed voter this June. This year the School Board candidates need your extra attention.

Please ask questions because your kids are watching and they have some high expectations.

Suzie Tierney, D.W. Lunt School
