Amanda Frost started this petition to Weare School Board

To the members of the Weare School Board:

     Over 90% of NH towns already provide full day kindergarten programs and Weare is trailing behind.
     Research indicates that full day kindergarten programs are beneficial for children, working families and communities:
Children in full day programs show academic gains in reading and math, significant gains in social and cognitive development including self control and cooperation skills, improved first grade readiness and learn in a developmentally appropriate environment.
Families are able to re-enter the work force sooner with consistency in care for their children.
     Economic and community benefits include families returning to the workforce, reduced costs associated with interventionists in elementary schools and making towns more attractive to young couples and families looking to move and subsequently businesses looking to open thereby broadening the tax base.
     These are just some of the many reasons why Full Day Kindergarten is beneficial to our community and why Full Day Kindergarten should be on the ballot in March 2019. The importance of FDK should not be undermined by other warrant articles. As you can see by the number of signatures on this petition, our community sees the importance of our schools and wants to support all aspects of learning and safety for the children of Weare. Let's not continue to fall behind the vast majority of our state.


Thank you for your consideration.
