"Save Our Neighborhood Schools" Yard Signs
Organized by: Patricia Gude
Join the effort to save Helena's neighborhood elementary schools and help fight back against misguided consolidation plans.
Your donation will go directly toward printing "Save Our Neighborhood Schools" yard signs with only the overhead (< 1%) associated with this web fundraising tool. Signs are printed downtown at "Signs Now" and cost $7 each.
Signs will be available for pick-up on a first come, first serve basis from Patty. Use the "Contact the Organizer" tool to get in touch. We will do our best to make sure that everyone that donates gets a sign.
The Helena School Board’s plans to pursue consolidation fly in the face of what Helena families want for their children and what they value in their small neighborhood elementary schools. Closing elementary schools will end up warehousing our children, focusing on industrial complexes instead of individual attention at the age when small matters most. Let's make sure the school board and superintendent know that Helena families do not want “Big Box Store” elementary schools, disconnected from neighborhoods.
