YES on Measure H

Dear Parents,

We are so close! but we need your help to pass Measure H and raise $3.5m per year for our schools for the next 12 years. Measure H will help us reduce class size in K-1, hire more STEM and literacy instructors, and help retain quality teachers with much needed raises.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO PASS THIS

Please vote and return your ballot now. Vote, seal, return. That’s all. Please go do it now. Only 15% of RWC voting parents have voted. We need your vote.

JOIN US IN A FINAL PUSH

We will be joining outside school drop off on Tuesday and Wednesday during school drop off. Bring your Measure H lawn sign or make a sign (blue and yellow) and help us get out the vote. This will only take 20 minutes, but it can make a huge different in voter participation. Just join us at 7:50 AM across the street from the school to remind folks to vote. With your help, we can get this passed!!

VOLUNTEER

We still need more callers and walkers between now and Nov 5th. Please give us just 2-3 more hours of your time to help us get to YES on Measure H. Sign up here.

Please ask us if you have any questions.

WE CAN DO THIS!!

Thank you for your help!
