Keep Enrichment Groups at Matapeake Middle School!!

This petition had 186 supporters


The administration has decided to cut the enrichment groups from Matapeake Middle School.  This is not because of funding.  This is because they do not see the value in such programs.  This is a very shortsighted approach to education  as it should be for all learners.

Gifted students will no longer have the opportunity to participate in enrichment groups outside of the general education classroom. These programs are the reason many students come to school everyday and stay engaged.

Matapeake Middle School's motto is "Making a Difference."

Shouldn't that be true for every child?

As Queen Anne County parents, we must reject this view of education and act swiftly for the well being of all children.
