To the editor:
On Nov. 19, 2008, the (New Holland-Middletown) Board of Education
voted unanimously to put a tax increase question on the April 7,
The need for additional resources has been brought about by many
factors. Each year our expenses increase by 6-8 percent, while the
money we take in from local, state and federal sources remains flat
or has been declining.
There is going to be a public meeting at the school in Middletown
on March 4 at 6:30 and another one at the old grade school in New
Holland on March 12 at 6:30 p.m.
These are informational meetings for the people of the community.

Even though the economy is unstable and life is challenging, we
need to determine what is in the best interests for the children!
Isn't this a small price to pay to keep our school open and to allow
our children to receive the education they deserve?
NH-M offers a lot for our children, and with small class sizes,
they receive a great education. Just check out our 2008 ISAT scores!
We are tied for first in the district. They are even able to get the
one-on-one when needed.
Please vote YES on April 7 to keep NH-M 88 open.
