Please attend tonight’s School Committee budget workshop (7 p.m., Buker Multi-purpose room). The focus of the presentation will be the Principals’ Budgets, School Choice and User Fees. At the end of the meeting there will be an opportunity for those who wish to ask questions and make comments. The meetings are also televised by local cable access TV (Comcast – channel 10, Verizon – channel 36,37)

Did you have a chance to email Deval Patrick? The Governor is expected to announce his cuts tomorrow — one rumor has it he is considering an 18% reduction in local aid — a reduction that would mean deep cuts to our schools between now and June. Click on the link below to access Stand for Children’s website with ready-to-go email text and all the contact information.

Send an email to Governor Patrick. It only takes a minute.

Be sure to attend Hamilton’s Finance Committee meeting tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 23rd at 7 p.m. (Hamilton Town Hall) where there will be discussion/decision of the share of the levy limit to be given to the schools. (We will let you know about Wenham as that date becomes available.)

Let’s have our voices be heard! Thank you!
