We, the parents of 4th grade students at Dousman Elementary, petition for five sections of 5th grade for the 2006-2007 school year. We feel it is in the best interest of the students and teachers involved. We are at approximately 27 students per section this year. With the community growth, we feel it is necessary to provide a controlled learning environment that can accept the projected growth without interruption to the students. Our school district has a distinguished reputation. However, we feel as though our children are not getting the education that we as a community have grown to expect, with the class sizes we have today. Therefore, we are petitioning for five sections in the 5th grade for the 2006-2007 school year.
