To the Editor,
We support Johanna Boynton for School Committee, because we know that she will put kids first. As a parent, teacher, coach and school volunteer Johanna has demonstrated her commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of young people.
We also know that Johanna respects and appreciates teachers as the backbone of our excellent school system. Our three sons attended Concord Public Schools and graduated from CCHS. Throughout their years they were inspired, challenged and supported by caring and creative teachers. Johanna will do whatever she can to ensure that we continue to attract and retain remarkable teachers.
As a School Committee member Johanna will be positive problem solver. When president of the Children’s Meetinghouse preschool and Alcott School PTG Johanna demonstrated an ability to bring administration, staff and parents together to achieve common interests. She listens to all sides, considers all options and finds innovative solutions. In the coming years, the School Committee will benefit from Johanna’s common sense approach to difficult issues.
Now that Johanna is willing to bring her considerable experience, expertise and enthusiasm to the Concord School Committee, we urge everyone to vote for her at the March 19 Town election. What is best for all of our children will always be at the top of her agenda.
