What’s More Important Than Education?

June 22, 2017
Emmetsburg News

To the Editor,

I have heard the comment made that Emmetsburg has a 1-A school with 3-A facilities. There may be some truth in this but I think it is a little misleading.

Living at 202 King St. across from the school we have been able to watch the construction of the Middle School and now watch the school activities at the completion. They come by auto, motorbikes, bicycles, and some by walking, and then when school is out they leave by the same modem. It is an interesting activity for us.

Now that school is out for the year the building is still being used. There are cars parked in front of the building, there are bicycles in the bike stand, cars in the parking lot and numerous motorbikes. I am not sure just want is taking place but the building is not just standing idle. I think this is great.

I think we have a very good school facility both with buildings and staff. I think it is one we can be proud of. I would like to commend those past board members who initiated these building projects and those members of the public who supported the bond issues. What is more important to us than the education of our children? Nothing!
