In the last few days you have received a flyer on the Ridgway School Ballot Issue 3B. If you have not read it carefully, or if you have “recycled” it, please pull the flyer out of the trash and read it carefully. The flyer explains all the reasons our school desperately needs the new performing arts classroom and gym.
What is important for every citizen to know is this campaign has been initiated, designed and managed by the students. Many of them are seniors and will not personally benefit from their efforts but they realize how the passage of this issue will improve the academic and physical fitness levels of all future students.
It has been a privilege as a senior citizen to be involved with these young people. I want you all to realize the interest, effort, originality, and love each of these students have put into the "job" of informing the local citizens.
We are fortunate to have such young people in our community and we are fortunate to have the outstanding school system we have.
