To the editor:
Hats off to Gould Evans Associates, Dr. Doll, and other USD 497 leaders.
As a Pinckney Panther parent, I’m thrilled the district is sharing their data and having open conversations with the public before drafting final plans for the no-tax-increase bond issue to go up for a vote next April. I came away from the meeting with an appreciation for needing separate gym and cafeteria spaces, and it was exciting to hear how all of these plans are meant to respect the organic way in which children grow and learn.
Gathering community input is a great way to gather community support! Pinckney was the first school, so I encourage everyone to attend one of these meetings and participate in the process of keeping Lawrence a great place to learn and live.
