Letter to the Editor: Trio of Stonehamites Back Middle School Plan

Cristine Linn, Joan McDermott and Lauren Murphy ask for voters to approve the Stoneham Middle School proposal on April 3.

[Editor's note: The following Letter to the Editor was submitted by Stoneham residents Cristine Linn, Joan McDermott and Lauren Murphy.]

We would like to take this opportunity to ask every Stoneham voter to support the new Building Project. Please vote "yes" on Question 1 on Tuesday, April 3, at our town election. 

The School Building Committee has been meeting and researching this project for the past two years. The State of Massachusetts has also researched it, has confidence in it and has approved the building plan overwhelmingly. They will reimburse 57.5 percent of the project. If we delay, this project will cost more and we may have difficulty getting another chance. 

The new Middle School will not only improve the quality of our children's educations, it will also improve Stoneham as a desirable community to live in.

Please vote yes for the Middle School on April 3. 

Thank you,

Cristine Linn

Where do your kids go to school? Please realize that Central School children and Middle School children will be going to school in a construction zone. We will also be loosing an elementary school which means that class size at the other three schools will increase. Some estimates have class size at 30. Also, if the school change to graded learning (k and 1 in one school, 2 and 3 in another...) there will be no more neighborhood school and parents will have to drop their kids all over town. Think. We need a new middle school, but not like this!
