Three years ago our family made the difficult decision to move from a private school we loved to the SAD 51 district because our previous school could no longer meet the needs of our children. From day one we have been blessed with incredible teachers, administrators, staff, parents and students alike. The care, professionalism and dedication of the school district has had a profound effect on our children.

We were most recently delighted and frankly, brought to tears, to learn that our child no longer meets the criteria for special educational services and is currently excelling at school. The self esteem and confidence that has been fostered in our child is due largely to the devoted teachers and Special Education Department of the SAD 51 schools.

We urge you to vote on June 12 and help pass next year’s school budget so that other children, like ours, can continue to reach their full potential. Every day teachers go to work and invest in the future of our towns, state, and country. As taxpayers, we need to do our part and support them. Its hard to imagine a better investment one could make.
