Parent support needed…

Parents we could use your help in a different way than we have asked before!
Our choir lists of students for next year are very exciting! Once again the NMS Choirs in each grade have grown. To have a middle school choir program with our current projection number of 425 students is unheard of. Our class sizes for all six choirs average 65-75 kids. We have one class of 102 6th graders! There is not any other class offering that expects the teacher to oversee this many children.
Currently I have Mr. Norwood’s help half of each day. The rest of the time I am on my own. (Not including all of the unpaid hours Mr. N puts in on his own).
We have asked the Middlebury School Board and our own Administrators to give him full time status for the last 3-4 years. Understandably they are in between a rock and a hard place as they decide where money should be spent. However they need to hear that it is a wise investment from you.
You have seen and heard what we are accomplishing. Many of you have tried chaperoning one grade at a time and have learned just how difficult it can be to control hundreds of middle school students. As great as our kids are, they are still kids!
The final decision should be coming to a vote soon. If you could send them a note in support of employing Mr. Norwood at a full time status I would really appreciate your help. Sincerely, Mrs. Armington
