Henry Tyson and St Marcus’ Leadership Have No Shame!

Filed under: St. Marcus,Vouchers — millerlf @ 4:11 pm

Once again St Marcus leadership wants to turn their demand for public property into a circus. During their quest for the Malcolm X site they opportunistically used children from their school  by marching them to the Malcolm X site during school hours.

Mr Tyson has sent out the following call-to-action for next week’s meeting. This is now about “misrepresentations” and the “right” to attend private schools, paid for with public dollars.

Dear Friends of St. Marcus,You are making a difference. Thank you to those who attended the first Town Hall meeting this past  Monday.  St. Marcus had strong representation and moving stories that made the case for why St. Marcus seeks to establish a second campus at the former Lee School site.Alderman Stamper II appreciated hearing from St. Marcus families and residents of the 15th district. He is providing another opportunity to hear from the community.  

SECOND Town Hall Meeting
Hosted by Alderman Russell Stamper II
Topic: Potential Sale of the Lee School Property to St. Marcus WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, 2014 (6:30 pm – 7:30 pm)
Northside YMCA – Cafeteria, 1350 W. North Ave, Milwaukee 53205We need an even bigger crowd at next week’s meeting to strongly show that there is an URGENT need for St. Marcus to expand NOW.  St. Marcus is currently at capacity with hundreds of children on a waiting list. 

Bring your friends, family and colleagues.

Your firsthand experiences are the most effective way to counter those who have misimpressions of St. Marcus. Express your support for the right of all children to have access to high quality schools.

The MPS Board and the Common Council still need to vote on the sale of the site.  St. Marcus and committed supporters are working diligently to resolve outstanding issues and dissolve the barriers to educating 200 new students in K3-1st grade this fall and up to 850 students when at full capacity.

Please join us next week Wednesday!  Your Voice Matters! 

Thank you for your continued prayers.
