Waverly 1st Grade Class Size
Dear Dr. Terranova and Members of the Board of Education,
We are signing this petition to urge you to hire an additional teacher for the 2012-13 1st grade class. As you know class sizes were extremely high in kindergarten with some classes having 26 children. As a community we have voted to support a school budget that adds additional sections to keep class size low. Even with an 11th section added, 1st grade class size has risen over the last month to 23 children per class. This does not include children who will add as the school year continues. Adding a 12th section of 1st grade will bring class size down to 21 children per class and allow space for new students. This will provide an environment more conducive to learning.
Thank you for continuing to support our children.
