WC parent urges voters to say yes

A new elementary school will bring more students to the Watson Chapel School District. My 5-year daughter attends Edgewood Elementary through school choice because as a parent I recognize the tremendous quality of education, teachers and leadership the district can bring.

Unfortunately, many families are overlooking Watson Chapel primarily due to its aging facilities. On May 14, I urge voters to say yes to our kids and vote in favor of building a new, safe and healthy elementary school. Attractive and safe facilities equal more students and increased funding for the district to provide the best possible education.

I look forward to the day my 3-year-old enrolls in Watson Chapel School District, and I hope more parents will begin to think the same way.
