Save Tumwater CISPUS

To Tumwater School Board, There are few issues as important as the quality education of the next generation of students and citizens. As parents, students, community members, tax payers and voters we realize that our goals are aligned with the Tumwater School Board's mission of providing the best education possible in a safe, secure, nurturing environment. For twenty-eight years, the CISPUS outdoor educational experience has been an integral and valuable part of the Tumwater educational learning process. By signing this petition, I ... * BELIEVE CISPUS continues to offer a unique and valuable educational opportunity that cannot be replaced by an alternative program currently proposed by Tumwater School District. * REQUEST that Tumwater School District develops a plan to keep CISPUS in the educational curriculum offered to students in both short term and long term. * AM WILLING to assist in finding alternative funding (through fundraising, donations, etc) to cover short term budget gaps created by existing economic conditions to maintain CISPUS in the curriculum.

My husband and I also have very fond memories of CISPUS and feel it was major milestone in both of our educational learning process. Please contact me for any help in fundraising efforts or needs to keep CISPUS a part of our kids education for many years to come.
