Save elementary schools
To the editor: The Eastwood Committee to Save Our Elementaries will be attending the Eastwood Board of Eductaion meeting on March 17 in the high school library. The board meeting begins at 7 p.m., and the group will meet about 10 minutes before.
The committee plans to ask the board of education to hold off any spending of money or decisions related to a central campus elementary or any new construction until the committee has time to meet with the board and share information that it has collected.
The committee organized in an effort to stop any levy that would consolidate the Luckey and Pemberville elementary schools into one central campus elementary school.
The committee’s slogan is: “We Voted No Twice – No Central Elementary,” and its mission statement is “Supporting the Eastwood School District while maintaining our local village elementaries.”
The committee’s goal is to renovate and restore the buildings in Luckey and Pemberville to state-of-the-art facilities at a cost cheaper than a new facility, as has been done throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
The Committee to Save Our Elementaries consists of local business people, educators, elected officials, builders and concerned residents from both villages and townships.
All interested voters are also invited to attend the next meeting of the committee March 24 at 7 p.m. in the Eagle Room of Pisanello’s Pizza, Pemberville.
