The Cody Elementary PTA Buzz Book is available on the website for current PTA Members. This information is available as a pdf on the Member Dashboard. Don't forget to tell all of your Cody friends to join the PTA and help support our children's school! The more members we have, the better our efforts as an organization and our Buzz Book will be.
At the September Meeting, we shared information about the upcoming vote regarding a levy override. If you would like more information about this topic, check out Millard Citizens for Continued Excellence's website, www.supportmps.com or on Facebook. The quoted text below was taken from their website:
"Millard Public Schools are recognized as one of the top districts in the state for student achievement while maintaining the 3rd lowest cost per pupil.
Millard Public Schools have consistently been rated as one of the top school districts in the Nebraska. In a recent survey, 97.1% of Millard parents rated the quality of education as Excellent or Good.
However, recent cuts to state aid made by the Legislature are putting the quality education we have come to know in jeopardy. From 2009 through the present, MPS enrollment has grown by 5.6% with no increase in state aid. State funding to other nearby districts increased, while Millard saw a $2 million DECREASE in state funding.
Without allowing MPS to override the levy limit, the only option will be to make steep cuts to the MPS budget."
The Cody PTA President, Corey Podwinski and Membership Chair, Ashley Podwinski will organizing a group of parents who are interested in helping spread the word and assist citizens with their votes. If you are interested in joining this group please email email@example.com or find us on Facebook!
