Letter to Editor: Raising the bar and school pride
I am writing this letter in support of the McAlester Public School bond vote coming up in January. As a dad of three, I have always wanted the “best” for my kids. I have always enjoyed seeing them do well in a newer, healthier environment. We came to McAlester from a larger school district where they had many opportunities and I would have liked to have offered them the same quality here in McAlester. As parents and supporters of the school we now have the opportunity to take a leap towards offering this better quality. It is impossible to put a price on the success of your children. But in my mind, a few hundred dollars a year is a small price to pay.
Letter to Editor: A debt of gratitude
Our community and my family owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to the McAlester Public Schools. My wife and I are very proud of the education that our children received in McAlester. My wife has over 28 years of experience with the McAlester schools and I recently retired with 30 years experience. As educators we have first-hand knowledge of our school system and the physical structures.
Letter to editor: So who pays for school bond?
Editor: Who pays, who doesn’t pay for the $35 million McAlester school bond? If you live north of Douglas, you pay. If you live west of Hardy Springs, you pay. If you live in north McAlester or North Town, you pay. If you live in Kincaid Hills, you don’t pay. If you live in Krebs, south of Douglas, Frink, east side of Hardy Springs, you don’t have to pay for the $35 million school bond program.
