About Us:

About Us We are a group of taxpayers that have had enough of the ridiculous pay raises, stipends, favoritism hires, mismanagement, unfair treatment of employees and disregard for our students. We have grouped together for one common goal and that is to make changes for the better in our school, for the education of our Children and our Children’s children. We are here to support not only the Students, but the staff & the taxpayers as well.
