Over the last several days, we've talked about communicating support for SB 2328 to our local legislators as well as members of the Senate Appropriations Committee - Education and Environment Division. Mrs. Neshem has a great example of testimony (below) she will deliver at a future hearing. In the meantime, she can send it to our local legislators and members of Senate Appropriations. Mrs. Neshem's Testimony --> https://5il.co/1p258 It's important to remember that everyone needs to find how this issue resonates with them as an individual. We don't want to send out form letters. We want legislators to know your actual, personal, and sincere concerns about what could happen to our district if SB 2328 does not pass. Mrs. Neshem does an excellent job with this. We'll continue to post examples of testimony and/or emails to legislators. If you would like someone to look at an email before sending it out, shoot it our way and we'll proof it for you. email@example.com Thank you for your continued support and engagement with this issue.

1-26-23 To the patrons of Lewis and Clark School District, I want to issue a public thank you to those who have donated funds to payoff negative lunch account balances! Since the beginning of the school year, we have received three $100.00 donations, a $500.00 donation, and on Friday, a donor asked to payoff all negative balances in the district, which at that point stood at nearly $1600.00! This last donor also offered to pay the lunch bills for one family for the rest of the year! All donors have asked to remain anonymous. On behalf of the Lewis and Clark School District, and those who have benefitted from the generosity of these donors, THANK YOU! Sincerely, Marc Ritteman, Supt. Lewis and Clark School District
