Education

  • Childhood poverty is an issue

     As a school district and community, we believe that all children can learn. 

    As Americans, we stand for equality of opportunity - everyone should have access to the American Dream. 

    Sure, most of us realize that those with wealthy or connected families sometimes get breaks the rest of us don’t get, but that is the relative few.

    Work hard, study hard, make your own luck, take advantage of the blessings of being born in the USA.
