CALL TO ACTION                                                                        April 23, 2019


PTA President Christine Gumbs is asking for help from all members of our school community to help advocate for funding for a three-six classroom building on our campus.  The bill was introduced by Representative Mark Nakashima, and at this time, we do not know if this request will be included in the final Capital Improvement Program (CIP) bill. 


Attached is the pdf document which includes sample testimony that can be submitted, as well as Legislator contact information.


Your help is much needed and greatly appreciated!
