Letter: Go Out and Vote on Tuesday, May 18


At the John Lewis Childs School Parent Teacher Association (JLCS PTA) meeting held on Tuesday, April 13, a motion was unanimously approved to support the 2010–2011 Floral Park-Bellerose Elementary School District Budget as educationally sound. The JLCS PTA urges all residents to go out to vote on Tuesday, May 18.

The purpose of the PTA is to advocate for and to promote the welfare of children and youth in the home, school and community. The PTA recognizes that every child deserves excellence in education and in quality of life. The JLCS PTA believes that the board of education has prepared an educationally sound budget designed to achieve the goal of providing a continued quality educational experience for all of our children even in this difficult economic time.

It is our responsibility as parents and neighbors to be advocates for the children of the Floral Park-Bellerose communities and to secure for them excellence in education. It is challenging as taxpayers to maintain such a high quality of life in our wonderful communities but a defeated budget will not afford our children the education and services we have come to expect and that they deserve.

On behalf of the JLCS PTA, thank you for your support.
