Whitney Houston became famous when she so beautifully declared that “the children are our future.” The words of that song touched a generation and are still so true today. We at Allendale Public believe it is our privilege and duty to “teach them well,” but we need your help to continue to provide the quality education your family has come to depend on.
Two weeks from today our community will again have the opportunity to exercise its right to vote when Allendale Public Schools’ millage renewal is on the ballot. This 18 mil levy will provide our district with critical funds needed for operational expenses such as servicing buses, paying for heat and light, meeting payroll, and purchasing books and supplies. Because this is a millage renewal and not a new millage, we are able to receive these funds without raising taxes to homeowners whose primary dwelling is in our district.
Never before has this millage been so crucial. A successful renewal would keep over $2,400,000 dollars in our district, and that means those dollars will be used to teach our students well.
Please remember to vote on Tuesday, May 8!
