Proposed cuts would eliminate teachers, staff and extracurriculars

Marc Fishman told his fifth grader that the Robot Club he enjoys after school may not be available to him next year. 

“Just the look on his face when I told him that could go away, he was wide-eyed,” Fishman said. “Then he asked ‘Why? I don’t understand.’ And on top of that, there are (other proposed cuts) that he doesn’t understand, like class size.”

Kathy Leahy’s son plays the trumpet in band. 

“I would not like that to go away,” she said of the proposed cut . . .
