To the Editor,

I have been reading all the articles, the letters to the editor trying to get a good idea of what a new school could mean to the community. I think Mr. Morkens opinion on a wait and see attitude is a good one. My husband and I went to the school teacher conferences on Monday, and my husband, having only been through the Peterson School wanted us to take a tour of the Rushford school, expecting to see a school in bad shape. Instead, he was amazed at how nice the school looked and first of all wanted to commend the janitors on keeping the school so clean, but the next question he had is why do they need a new school? I have heard this question asked many times in our community lately. I was a student in that school and I feel this school still has many years left, if it gets some TLC. The janitors apparently know how to keep it clean, so now we just need to do periodic maintenance on our building. I am sure that our janitors are capable of fixing a hole in the wall. That picture in the Post Bulletin told me that we don't care enough for our school to fix it up, if we have left a hole in the wall that long. If we can't fix a simple problem like that in our older school, what will our new school look like in a couple of years?

We have three children in the Rushford-Peterson school, and to see them in a new school would be wonderful, these same three children live in my home, and to see them living in a brand new house would be wonderful too. My point is- we do not plan to build a new home at this time, especially if our taxes should go up again, we could not afford it. Instead we fix our older home and give it some TLC by maintaining it with a lot less money then building a new home would be. If the school needs a new boiler system buy it, if it needs a new roof, put one on. I think that many of us taxpayers could justify those costs. It should definitely cost a lot less then building a newer,smaller school. We have two perfectly good buildings, both in good locations, lets fix them up where needed, maintain them, and use them.

We feel the taxpayers have given a lot already, by voting yes for the last referendum, and we have not even heard how that is going to affect us yet. If the referendum to build the new school were to pass, where would it stop? More raises for our administration, more upkeep? The bottom line to me is that my children get a good education. Is their education going to get better with a new schoo .....
