Eight students is not a ‘swelling;’ support public schools by votes yes to 3A and 3B

In reference to the Sept. 21 story regarding the eight new Summit students attending Vail Mountain School: While I am not certain as to why this is front-page news, I am fairly certain that eight students do not constitute a “swelling” of anything. I think it is great that we have a private school opportunity available to those who wish to pursue that avenue. I am also sure that we all wish every success to those eight students as they continue their educational journey.Now, for those of us in the Summit School District, I would like to say that the beginning of this year has been fantastic.The Back to School night at the middle school was hugely successful. There was such a great feeling of cooperation and community in the building that night.Thanks go to the many parents that attended. I agree with Jim Dossett (SDN, Sept. 28) that last week’s homecoming activities were showing Summit County at its finest.This is a great and new beginning for our school district. Please jump in and get involved in any way you can. The Summit Daily will now be printing an events calendar for the entire district every Thursday. If you want to know what’s going on in your school or in the district for the following week, you can now check every Thursday in the Daily. Also, if you want to add an event to the weekly calendar contact Karen Mason at (970) 668-3011. Thank you Summit Daily for your support.If you have any questions regarding the mill levy or bond issue, please call the central administration staff or attend one of the many meetings surrounding this issue. Vote Yes on 3A and 3B.One last note for all the Summit High graduates out there in their first year of college: I’ve heard from so many of you that it’s going great. Keep up the good work.
