I am a father with one child in the Clover Park School District. I’m writing in support of the district’s replacement levy.
As a military family living on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, we want children to have access to the best quality of education no matter where we are stationed around the world.
I would hope that other military families and residents of Lakewood would vote in support of the levy so their children and future families stationed at JBLM will have the resources and funding available to provide the best opportunities for our children.
The school my student attends is Rainier Elementary. Our child has attended school in the Clover Park district for four years now, and we have benefited from having smaller class sizes, newer and improved technology, and extra security precautions.
If the levy is not passed, we need to consider the negative impact this will have on our students and the community where we live. Please join me by voting yes. The students deserve our support.
