Victory

From Joanne Hendricks: I would like to thank everyone who supported our cause here! We brought the petition and comments to the Jeffco Board meeting, and several members of the Board changed their vote! WE WON!! My most sincere thanks to everyone for their support!

The STEM program is so important for the futures of our children. To have a program locally to boost our kids up into an interest, to foster that interest, to give them direction while in our existing public school system would be so valuable. Valuable to our children, our community, and our demographic. This is an opportunity to change lives for the better. As parents, we always say we want our children to do better than we did, and here is a program that has the potential to launch them into successful lives and careers. They are the future, let us invest in them!

      Since our elementary school (Stony Creek) doesn't have a gifted program, the opportunity for my son to start STEM early will be a great thing for us!

      Why wouldn't we want to provide this option in Jeffco?Research shows that choice in schools works, and choices within Jeffco currently are EXTREMELY limited in scope and real availability. We are strongly considering taking our child out of Jeffco public schools next year in order to have more options.

      My niece was so excited it be a part of this program. Please don't take this opportunity away from her. She's very intelligent and we need to nurture that intelligence with these types of programs, not discourage that intelligence!

      The benefits are unsurpassable.
