FOURTH GRADE MASH
A huge thank you to all of the 4th graders and their parents who have volunteered at the school store this year – hope you have enjoyed it! We invited every volunteer (based on the sign-ups in September) to staff the school store at least twice this year; however, I recognize that some children might not have been able to attend due to sickness or other conflicts. We tried to make those up, so that everyone had a chance to participate, but if for some reason your child has wanted to staff the school store and has not yet had the opportunity, please reach out to me at email@example.com, and I will be sure to include them in one of the April or May dates. Also, if you are looking for a way to help celebrate your child’s birthday in the classroom, you can purchase Beaumont Bucks, which are $1 gift certificates that your child can redeem at the school store. If you are interested in purchasing Beaumont Bucks, please also let me know. All proceeds benefit the charity that the fourth graders have chosen. Thanks!
TESD ENCOURAGES RESIDENT INVOLVEMENT IN OPPOSING PROPERTY TAX ELIMINATION
At the January 23, 2017 School Board meeting, the Tredyffrin/Easttown School Board adopted a resolution opposing legislation that would eliminate school property taxes
. This proposal is currently being considered by state legislators and, if passed, has the potential to leave schools dramatically underfunded by eliminating property taxes and replacing them with increases in personal income tax and sales tax
, which are subject to shortfalls during economic downturns.
The shift from the property tax to the income tax and sales tax will have a harmful effect on the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District. Many of our District’s top quality programs result from careful planning and funding at the local level with a strategic focus on providing our students what they need to succeed in tomorrow’s world. This legislation will strip TESD of the ability to function independently, effectively making local authorities dependent upon Harrisburg.
Funding will flow through the state, eliminating financial discretion for local districts. High quality programs that exceed state mandates and minimum standards require funding currently provided locally.
The District encourages interested parents and community members to send correspondence to legislators.
for more detailed information and contact information for our legislators.
