This election is about fresh ideas, and new perspectives. However, we'll always respect the viewpoints of those running on the other side. We need to return to a basic level of civility in this country, and it starts with local elections. This team is looking forward to the exchange of genuine ideas, while meeting members of the MNSD community along the way.

Of Pennsylvania's 500 school districts, 428 provide full-day Kindergarten, yet Marple is one of the 72 districts that don't. Full-day kindergarten has been shown to provide more
adequate time for young students to master early literacy and critical social development skills. On top of this, full-day kindergarten provides financial relief for working families, and creates a more equitable education system. In my opinion, we should have a community conversation on this, as I've heard from parents who have expressed support for full-day kindergarten. Of course there's also funding considerations to make such a thing happen, etc, but I'd like to hear more from our community members on this idea.
The team agrees, we need to end the stigma surrounding careers in the trades. The HS to college pipeline isn’t working for some, and this doesn’t mean we don’t support a four year degree path. Of course we do! However, there’s plenty of students who enjoy working with their hands, and these are well paying jobs. The biggest issue is when students feel as though they have only one path after high school. If elected, a goal of ours will be to promote career days based on different careers. Let’s bring in the local plumber, electrician, welder, engineer, business owner, you name it. In doing so, our students will be inspired to learn and find their passion.
