Support the school budget

To the Editor:

Next Tuesday is voting day for our school budget. The members of our school PTAs have voted overwhelmingly to support the 2014-15 budget, and we urge Rockville Centre residents to get out and vote.

For the third year in a row, the members of our Board of Education and the employees of the school district have worked diligently to preserve the existing academic and extracurricular programming while maintaining a budget within the tax levy cap limits. In an era of sharply rising spending mandates without offsetting aid, this is a big accomplishment. However, for the budget to pass, we need everyone to get out and vote! Polling takes place at South Side High School from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Please take a moment out of your day to vote “yes” and support the budget to:

• continue the academic excellence our community expects;

• preserve the programming that could be at risk if a contingency plan is in effect;

• invest in our community and put our children first.

Let’s work together as a community to support our children. Please join us in voting “yes” on Tuesday at South Side High School.

Karen Parker and Sue Quilty

Co-presidents, RVC Council of PTAs

Re-elect Mayda Kramer

To the Editor:

We are urging our friends and neighbors to re-elect Mayda Kramer to the Rockville Centre Board of Education. We worked extensively with Mayda when she was treasurer and then president of the South Side High School PTA, and know she is an asset to our schools and deserves another term on our school board.

Mayda believes passionately in public education and has worked tirelessly to ensure that all children in Rockville Centre receive the best education possible. As an accountant, she has the skill set necessary to analyze and negotiate our school budget and bond issues in a fiscally responsible way. This year she vowed to retain our current levels of staff and service with the smallest tax levy possible, and that goal was achieved.

Please join us on Tuesday in re-electing Mayda Kramer to another term as school board trustee.

Vote for Mayda
