1, Great Brook is a unique smaller middle school serving the needs of the northern end of the district. It is known for the community spirit, ability for all students to have the opportunity to participate in sports and after school programs.
2.The campus location is the most logical in the district. Set directly across from AES they can share space, staff, resources and programs like having middle-schoolers working with the AES students as mentors AES students often watch presentations by the GBS students. GBS is within walking distances to town to access a variety of community resources like: the library, McCabe Forest, the Town Hall and Teen Center as well as opportunities for community service. The recreation office located at AES sponsors many after school activities and cooperates with the school. This provides a stop-gap for the latch key kids.
3. The closing of GBS would be a detriment to the Town of Antrim and pose an unfair hardship.
4. Students will suffer from the distance and commuting time. Probably many will be unable to participate in sports programs and after-school activites due to the distance. In addition it adds a hardship on parents & families being able to share in those activities.
Please let your voice be heard and sign this petition to protect GBS Middle School. Thank you, Janet McEwen
