Letter to the Editor: Bay students need our continued support

To the editor:

When my husband and I were looking for a place to raise our children, great schools were of the utmost importance. Bay Village offered those and everything else we valued.

Now our children have graduated from the Bay Village public school system, and we know we made the best choice so many years ago. They are well educated, well rounded, successful adults. They not only received an excellent academic education from the Bay Village Schools, but they learned the importance of service to others from the many opportunities offered in our schools.

The opportunities available to the students, whether it is academics, community service, music, art, athletics, and drama continue to be outstanding. The school board and administration have done an exceptional job with the taxpayers' money by being fiscally responsible and economical.

I continue to support our schools, and I urge my Bay Village friends and neighbors to do the same. Our housing stock is better valued here because of the excellent school system. But the most important reason is because it’s the right thing to do.

Children today need the best education we can give them. They will not only be competing in a global market, but they will be asked to help support a growing elderly population. There is no question they need our support now. Please vote yes on the Bay Village school levy.
