I have three children who all graduated from La Crescent -Hokah Schools, and have gone on to have successful lives. I credit the school system and teachers for giving them the groundwork in the excellent education they received in our schools.
I have been listening to many residents of our community. They are appalled at the cuts that have been made because we have funding issues. Class offerings have been cut and class sizes are often to big to safely carry out parts of the regular curriculum.
I hope that reason will prevail and the wonderful members of this community will vote YES on Nov. 7- for our schools and our students. I have three grandchildren who are in this district and I hope they will be able to get the same quality of education their mother and uncles received.
