If you haven't seen the video of Madi Bigej cooking up her cauliflower tots yet, you'll definitely want to check it out. Who knew cooking up something so healthy could be so fun? I hear they taste good too, even if you're not a cauliflower fan. Good luck, Madi!
We still don't have a good sense of how the State School Fund is shaping up. If you've been following the news out of Salem at all, you know there's a proposal for a $7.8 billion state school fund. But in order for districts across the state to continue serving students at current levels, the fund needs to reach $8.4 billion.
Despite a projected shortfall, I am committed to doing all we can to continue moving forward. We are committed to the investments we've made and hope to keep providing students and staff the resources needed to continue our momentum.
It's not too late for you to make your voice heard. If you're so inclined, take a moment and send an email to your elected representatives to let them know how you feel about the proposed budget. If you're not sure who represents you, you can look it up here. Legislators work for you - your emails make a difference.
I hope we reach a point in the future where our leaders are committed to fully-funding public education. In the meantime, we can continue our commitments to our students to ensure that each one of them has the opportunity to reach their potential.
