I want to take a moment to thank everyone in the Astoria School District who has, or is voting “yes” for the Astoria school bond, and yes for Astoria kids.
My children and their peers will benefit from this. Our community will benefit from this, as these kids graduate happier, safer, and with more success and enter the local workforce.
My son will appreciate the added security brought to the high school, and the improved facilities.
My daughter will greatly appreciate the new middle school, being better able to enjoy what little sunshine Astoria brings in classrooms with windows and more useful floor plans, and ultimately the improvements at the high school.
The district will benefit from updated facilities that are more economical and environmentally responsible. The teachers will benefit from improved teachability from more comfortable and eager students — especially during those teen years.
Thank you again to everyone voting “yes” for Astoria kids.
