Fraser March to 75 Calhoun Monday

A recent letter to downtown residents (and all others who believe one move for Fraser students is better than two).
District 20 Neighbors,

Please join our community in support of Fraser parents and students on Monday, March 23, 2009 in front of Fraser Elementary on Columbus Street. We will begin meeting at 3:00 pm to organize and march to the school board meeting at 75 Calhoun Street. The plan is to begin walking around 3:45 pm in order to allow plenty of time for people to sign in to speak at the board meeting.

Whether you agree with Dr. McGinley's decision to close Fraser or not, certainly we can all agree that moving the Fraser students to the Archer building in August 2009 and then again in January 2010 to the new Sanders-Clyde building is not in the best interest of our children. As a community we should stand by each other on these issues, even if they may not personally affect us. I am asking you to please join our peninsula neighbors in the Fraser community in supporting their request for Fraser students to remain at Fraser for the 2009-2010 school year. Dr. McGinley has already denied their request to remain at Fraser until January 2010 due to the conflict it would create with teacher contracts.
