I Love Pleasanton Schools
Original post made
on Jul 17, 2009
I am not affiliated with PPIE, but I have kids that attend pleasanton schools. I came to Pleasanton because of the community and the value it placed on schools. I was so dissapointed when measure G failed; and here we have this opportunity to donate funds through PPIE to keep our schools from increasing student/teacher ratio and prevent cuts to programs such as music; but as a community it saddens me to see we only donated $220k out of the needed $2.8mil. I hope that all of you that read pleasanton weekly, take the time to talk to all the parents, and have each and everyone donate something, all it takes is a little over $100 per child. Honestly, if as a community, we do not reach this fundrasing goal, this might be the turning point for pleasanton, and maybe my wife is right, and, maybe we should move elsewhere, a community that still values their schools; even San Ramon passed their parcel tax. If a community loses value of their children's education; then in my mind, it is on a slippery slope downhill in regards to quality of life within a community. Please do something about this, I donated, and I talk to everyone I know, please do your share. I want to continue to live here, do not give my wife a reason to move out and go closer to Alamo. We have less than a month left to raise 2.6millon; we do not have time to just sit back and hope for donations to come in last minute; please donate today www.ppie.org
