PAGE 4-- WEDNESDAY, DEC. 1,2010 • CLOVERDALE REVEILLE * CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA 7~ Q.I, ~ .... Schools have changed Editor: There is really no way to compare elementary school students in 2010 to those of 45 years ago (Historical Comer Nov. 10, 2010 Cloverdale Reveil- le). What they do have in common is 28 plus students, but it ends there.. Our students now have a computer/technological age that will leave them in the dust if they don't have access. In parts of Sonoma County, half of the elementary school age children have Spanish as their first language at home. Learning English is difficult enough (for all kids) without over- crowded classes where sometimes it is difficult just to maintain a quiet and educational environment. Forty-five years ago, Morn was usually home after school. Now we have many single parent homes and difficult economic situations. In dual par- ent and single parent homes, the majority of these parents need to work full time to make ends meet. I would imagine this makes parent participa- tion at school strained for most. Hate to say it, but 45 years ago in school (where I grew up) teachers were allowed to whack you on the head with a ruler to make you pay attention! Obviously, that should've never happened, but it did. Discipline was far more strict back then and we didn't have the distractions that are abun- dant now. Kindergarten (45 years ago) usually had a morning and afternoon sees- sion with 20-22 children in each class.., now at Jefferson Elementary we have 33 children in one class. No matter how you crunch the numbers and remind us that there is no money, this does not make sense and in reality is an unsafe situation. In my opinion, changes must be made to insure the proper education of these children. Ruthie Kurpinsky, Cloverdale Thanks for your hard work on UGB Editor: I want to thank everyone for all their hard work on Cloverdale's first Urban Growth Boundary. Endorsed by a significant number of agencies, the UGB protects our unique character while allowing Cloverdale the flexibility it needs to insure our ability to grow smartly over the next 20 years. I'm also pleased with the process used by the city, to develop this historic milestone. The City Council and City Planning Commissioners listened to public input, directed staff and adopted a sensible UGB. The opponents of this UGB should also be thanked for their vigilant watch over our city and their city leaders. While we may not always agree on the issues at hand, we all have the best interests of Cloverdale at heart. Thank you. Gus Wolter, Cloverdale Thank you Cloverdale for your support Editor: i want to take this opportunity to thank the Cloverdale community for supporting my election to the CUSD School Board. This is a great honor to serve our community, and most importantly, the students and parents of Cloverdale. You can be assured, in the next four years, I will be working hard at improving our schools for the benefit of our students. I also want to thank all the other candidates for running excelJent campaigns. The results of this election were very close, which indicates the strength of all the candidates. Most importantly, I want to thank the Cloverdale community for their support in passing Measure G. This is a huge step in returning educational funding to local control. In the past couple of years, the state has been balancing the budget on the backs of our students. Our state legislators have, once again, suspended Prop 98, the voter-approved minimum school funding guarantee (which means that the Legislature can approve further cuts with a simple majority vote). With our schools having been subjected to 60 percent of the cuts (even though education funding makes up 40% of the budget), the future for Public Education funding is not promising. That is why the passing of Measure G is so critical at this point in time. Thank you, again, Cloverdale for your support! Gent Lilt, Cloverdale Pictured are Mrs. Connie Soldate and her second grade class receiving a $2,000 donation check from John Avery of Calpine- Geysers. The money will be used to support the very successful gardening program at Geyserville Elementary School. Mrs. Soldate is the garden teacher and runs the program for the school. Many delicious fruits and vegetables have been grown in the garden, some being used for special lunches. The Geyserville Elementary Garden has also received donations from Syar Gravel Industries for $7,000, the Parent Teacher Club for $1,700, and the School Garden Network for $5,000 this year. Thank you for all of the community support for the garden program. -Tonya Guisso City of Cloverdale to use Quimby The Reverend W. R. Wilcox, will be the new lnterim Minister.
