Knights in the Knews

Blue vs Green on Friday--lots of spirit shown!

Building & Site Sinking Fund

In a little over a month, you will be asked to decide an important issue in the November election. The Troy School District is asking voters to consider a 1 mill Building and Site Sinking Fund. This fund would be created at NO INCREASE TO YOUR CURRENT TAX RATE and would allow us to make necessary repairs and refurbishments to Smith and the rest of our schools.

If you have questions about this proposal, there is lots of information and a FAQ link on the TSD website.

But the most important thing to do right now is to make sure you are registered to vote! The last day to register is Tuesday, October 10th. Here is the form, which can be dropped off at the City Clerk's office.

As always, thank you for your support!
