Dear Dublin Unified School District Board of Trustees, Please keep John Green Elementary a K-5 grade level school. Please do not force us, to be the only elementary school in this district and those school districts surrounding us, to send our children to middle school far too soon. Help us advocate for the HEALTH and SAFETY of our CHILDREN. Our children deserve the same wonderful elementary school educational experience and opportunities as all those around them. Let’s really put, “kids first.” Thank-you, Concerned Parents of John Green Elementary School
Studies also found that sixth graders at a middle school had less motivation and suffer from lower self-esteem then those of their peers at an elementary setting. An increase in bullying was also shown.
