School supply lists for middle schoolers

posted Jul 28, 2013, 1:01 PM by jodi newton

This year we are asking families to help our classroom community by buying some of the school supplies for their student. Please purchase what you can from the lists (attached below) and have your student bring them in the first week of school.  Classroom donations of tissues, hand sanitizer, etc. are also much appreciated. 

Students should bring these supplies daily, as well as their school planner (which will be provided by the school at the beginning of the year). 

Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.  We hope that you have a wonderful summer and we are looking forward to a great upcoming school year!

Metro funding shortfall

posted Apr 2, 2013, 9:14 PM by jodi newton

Metro continues to face a funding shortfall. The state Legislature is considering new transit funding tools, but if none is approved, Metro faces a $75 million annual shortage after some stop-gap funding runs out in mid-2014. A report we released today says we would have to eliminate, reduce or change about two-thirds of Metro bus routes. We want you to know what’s at risk and join our conversation about Metro’s future service.

While the report provides an illustration of specific routes that might be eliminated, reduced or changed, the actual proposed reductions will take more planning, including  public outreach on the first potential reductions this fall. Reductions would be made starting in September 2014 and continuing through the following year.
