I would like to clarify why it scares me that people are digging for dirt in the minutes-I am not scared that they are going to find anything but a summary of committed and honorable people helping a wonderful school. This is an A+ school for 9 years running, that has always been run in a fiscally responsible way that has resulted in a surplus in the budget for every year since maybe the first year. The teachers of the school are dedicated, hard working, and good at what they do, and George Abounader is a true asset to the school and the community. The parents and students of the school are overwhelmingly happy with it, and if they ever have a concern, there is always an open door for them to bring it to the board or to George himself. I am proud to serve on the board.What scares me is if a prospective board member feels that the only way he or she can win is to try to find something negative or wrong with a wonderful school; I am worried about how that person would be as a board member. We have a fiduciary responsibility to support the school, raise the funds to ensure that it has the resources that it needs, and improve it if we can- but we should never try to attack it or break it down just to try to find a talking point for an election. I hope that we continue to have good and honorable people serve the school so that it exists, as good as it is today, when my daughter is old enough to attend.Sincerely,Jennifer TenneyMICMS board member/secretary
