COMMUNITY THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2014 Page 5 A,C&apos;E,4 V"o._rcE00 Help us provide a safe and secure furore for PRAS By Kirk Ham PARK RIVER, N.D. -- On November 18, the patrons of the Park River Area School District will make a very important deci- sion about our future. On the bal- lot there will be two questions. The first asks to give the school board the authority to bond for $8,978,620 for a renovation/build- ing project This question needs a 60% majority to pass. The sec- ond question asks to increase the school districts debt limit by 5/'0. This question needs a 50% ma- jority in order to pass. Both measures must pass in order for this project to move forward. This process began in January when a group of school stake- holders began a strategic planning process to gather input and to help provide a roadmap for our district. The group identified safety and security as well as fa- cility issues as their two main concerns. This led to a facility study and began the process of studying those concems and try- ing to find solutions to them. That process has led us to our bond vote on November 18. If you have had children in our elementary school recently, you are probably familiar with the challenges that we face. Small classrooms, lack of storage & of- rice space, an ineffective elemen- tary gym space, safe & secure en- trance issues, and the list goes on. The plan calls for renovating ex- isting elementary classrooms on the lower level to increase their size. We would renovate the cur- rent elementary gym and convert that to classroom and office space. We would build an addition on the west side of the school that would include a main administrative of- rice, fitness center, locker rooms and a gymnasium. The project also calls for a new roof for the current gym and all of the 1999 ad- dition. There are many heating, cooling, electrical upgrades for the 1955 and 1979 additions that are also in this plan. Finally we would create two safe and secure entrances to our building that would help us better monitor who enters our building. There are many other parts to this plan and I encourage you to take a look at the presentation on our website, or view on AggieVision. There are many reasons to do this project now. Low interest rates, rising construction costs, and a good economy are just a few. Improvement is an ongoing process and we are continually looking at ways to improve the ed- ucation of our students. We have done a good job of focusing on having a strong curriculum, qual- ity teaching staff, state of the art technology, & creating a positive school climate. Now is the time to improve our facilities. I often ask people if they think we will Veterans Benefits If you're a veteran enrolled in the VA health care program, or are a beneficiary of the Civil- tan Health and Medical Program (CHAMPVA), the VA is now offering a dental insurance pro- gram that gives you the option to buy dental in- surance through Delta Dental and MetLife at a reduced cost.

Most say yes and if that is the case, we need to prepare for that. The communities in the Park River Area District have a long history of strongly supporting their school and we are confident that will con- tinue. We are asking you to help us provide a safe and secure build- ing as well as quality and adequate educational spaces for our students for now and in the future. Our kids deserve that. I strongly urge everyone to get out and vote on November 18. Voting will be done in the Alum- ni Room and the polls are open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. If you are unable to vote then, absentee ballot applications can be picked in the office or are available on our website.
