$15,000 to School Is 'Fabulous'

To the Editor,

I would like to acknowledge the anonymous person who recently donated $15,000 to the Les Cheneaux Community Schools.

This is a fabulous gift that will enable us to continue on with the original school calendar adopted for this year. We do not have to add 35 minutes per school day and cut 10 scheduled days of school as a result of this gift.

We will not have 11 support staff people missing 10 days of pay. It will not cost parents additional child care expenses; and most importantly, our children's education will not be affected adversely.

You accomplished much for our schools and students through your generous donation, and this district is grateful for your contribution to education.                     Susie Rutledge, president of the Support Staff                                   Union at Les Cheneaux Community                               Schools
