A group of 5th grade students from Lincoln Elementary spoke at the school board meeting this past Monday. They had worked with their teacher Mrs. Blose to write essays urging the superintendent and the board to allow for early dismissal for elementary students taking the PSSAs, just like the current practice for high school students taking midterms and finals.
It was great to read their well crafted letters, as well as see their poise as they presented the board with their key arguments. They set a great example to everyone for how to get involved in shaping district policies. I hope you'll take a moment to read their letters below (you can click on each for a closer view).
