Serving Waitsburg, Dayton and the Touchet Valley

Please Support Dayton Schools

To the Editor

Four generations of my family have attended Dayton Schools and received a solid education here. I want to ensure that the children in our community continue to have the same opportunity for a quality, well-rounded education. That is why I am supporting the upcoming levy for Dayton Schools.

The Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) levy will support Career & Technical Education (CTE), vocational programs, athletics, extra-curricular activities, food services, transportation, and more. The Capital levy will allow for technology upgrades and building improvements, including an auditorium update, gym roof replacement, and elementary security gate replacement to name a few projects. Both the EP&O and Capital levies are critical to our children’s overall positive and productive educational experience.

Having been a teacher for over 30 years, I understand the importance of a community making education a priority and supporting its local schools. I recognize the effort Dayton’s staff makes every day as they strive to provide the best learning environment for all students. Please join Jay and me in supporting their important mission, and vote YES to invest in our schools, our community, and our future.
