Recreation is good, but don't forget about academics

Congratulations on the acquisition of a new recreational facility for our youth. I hope we see good outcomes.

Unfortunately a much needed library was not incorporated into the new facility. Our children need a place conducive to learning. They need computers, reference materials and a quiet place without interruptions.

Our school children desperately need our help. Many are struggling and are not able to keep up with required learning.

As a community we need to be aware of the educational needs of our children and do what we can to prevent failures and dropouts.

Leaders and others, please find sources for a library. Thank you.
