Let’s think about the children

SoVaNow.com / May 16, 2013



Dear Viewpoint:

They are trying to close Cluster Springs Early Leaning Center. This is a very well ran education program. They have highly educated teaching staff and a very efficient Management and support staff. I know from personal experience because my son went last year. It has given him a great head start on Kindergarten I have seen it throughout this school year.

We also have a 3 year old Daughter so whenever my wife had to go to school with our son for a class project or field trip she would go along. the wonderful teachers would always let her take part as if she was part of the class. Now all she talks about is when can she go to school there!

PLEASE if you feel the same way let your voices be heard loud and clear! Its our money that pays for the program. So lets tell the School Board Members we elected them to speak for us and most importantly when speaking at least listen to us.

This is supposed to be all about the children we must give them the best education that we can. Because the way the world is now they are really going to need it in the future. SO PLEASE LETS JUST THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN FOR A CHANGE!

Sincerely
Dennis Clark
Alton
