Dear First Avenue Families,
We are looking for parent volunteers on Tuesday, March 7th at 7:45 am to hand out
"Vote for Measure A" flyers in the car line. Sign-up below and wear your favorite FA T-shirt or a blue shirt if you do not have a FA T-shirt ! We are only asking for 15-30 minutes of your time which could translate into helping us make sure that every eligible parent votes on March 7th and that Measure A passes! We need a 2/3 vote to pass, so every vote is critical!
Thank you to those of you who have volunteered at the phone banks, put up a Vote Yes on Measure A Lawn Sign, done Precinct Walks, and have already mailed in your ballot! We appreciate your support!
Please talk to your friends and neighbors and ask them to support Arcadia Schools by voting "YES" on Measure A!
Please see the below message with valuable information on how to spread the word, how and where to vote from:
Lori Phillipi, Arcadia USD Board of Education Trustee
We are coming into the final stretch of our campaign, and many of you have asked what you can do to help us win!
Here are three easy ways to help:
1. Post this 30 second video on your Facebook page:https://vimeo.com/200753391/bc07603abe
2. Join VoterCircle -- an easy way to match your personal contacts with registered voters in Arcadia USD and ask them to pledge their support -- then the campaign will remind them to vote (and take them off our phone bank list to save a phone call!) Check it out here:https://votercircle.com/c/yes-on-measure-a/join
3. Sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044eabaa2aa6f49-parcel for our remaining phone bank nights (Mondays through Thursdays) and our final precinct walk (March 5 or 6)
Measure A requires a 2/3 vote to pass!
Without Measure A's passage, Arcadia USD will lose more than $3 million a year, which would mean deep budget cuts, including teacher reductions and the loss of key academic programs.
Today, February 28 is the last day to request a vote-by-mail ballot. Click here if you would like to request a vote-by-mail ballot to vote Yes on A. If you have your ballot, please vote Yes on A, seal, sign and stamp your envelope and send it back right away. Ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day, March 7.
