Endorses millage request
To the Journal editor:
The Negaunee school district has an excellent school system and supportive community. That is why we decided to live in Negaunee when moving here 44 years ago. Our children graduated from Negaunee High School as have three grandchildren. Six grandchildren are currently attending middle/high school.
The upcoming school millage request, if approved by the voters, will go toward various much-needed upgrades and repairs to the elementary, middle and high school buildings. In addition, a new indoor practice complex will be built.
As an avid Miners sports fan, I see it as a plus for students involved in activities such as athletics and band, especially as they prepare for the spring and summer sports season and also the late fall sports season.
The building also will be made available to community members outside of the normal practice schedule.
Depending on our spring snow melt, any outdoor practices are currently limited. I encourage school district voters to votes “yes” to approve the millage.
