Letter To The Editor - February 27, 2006 - From Sandra Zandbergen - South Carvolth School Public Survival Meeting March 8

On 8 March at 7:00 pm, there will be a public meeting at South Carvolth Environmental Elementary attended by the Langley School Board and Trustees where these questions will be raised by parents, teachers at the school and other committed citizens and the incredible strength of the programs and value of the existence rural schools will be demonstrated. The plight and uncertain future of this school in British Columbia epitomizes the inconsistent messages being sent to parents, teachers and the children in our school system. South Carvolth school offers a wonderful, warm, stimulating atmosphere for learning and an example of the type of school our community and our province needs more of. We invite you to come to this public meeting and listen to this debate and ask these questions of the Langley School board. South Carvolth Environmental Elementary is located at 928-200st in Langley.

On January 20, 2006 educators, employee groups, parent representatives and community representatives participated in a workshop, which is part of the process for developing a 2006-2008 Strategic Plan for Langley School District.
"... to put our children's education in the forefront and give them the future they deserve."

"...to achieve a quality, stable, flexible and accessible early learning and childcare system we must listen to communities about the unique needs of their parents and providers."
"Delivering opportunities for informed choices."

"Providing a safe, healthy and caring learning and working environment in which all feel confident and have a sense of belonging."

South Carvolth Environmental Elementary School is a shining example of the kind of public school put forth in their mandate.
South Carvolth Environmental Elementary School is a unique, cutting edge curriculum from Kindergarten to grade 7 combining the 3 Rs with outdoor education.
South Carvolth Environmental Elementary School has extremely committed and involved parents and teachers children who love to attend school.

WHY, THEN, WHEN THE SCHOOL BOARD IS RUNNING A MILLION DOLLAR SURPLUS, IS THE LANGLEY SCHOOL BOARD CONSIDERING CLOSING THIS SCHOOL? - Sandra Zandbergen
