Dear Halifax Residents,
My name is Kim Cicone and I am running for Halifax Elementary School Committee. I am running for School Committee because I am a concerned parent and taxpayer.
In the seven years that my children have been at HES I have been an involved volunteer at the school. I have spent the past four years on the board of the HES PTO. I spent two years as the President and the past two years as the Vice President. During this time I have worked closely with the administration and have a good idea of how the school is run. I also have a close relationship with many of the teachers and students at the school. In addition, I have been the Secretary of the HES School Committee since August 2015. Prior to my involvement with the PTO I was on the Board of Trustees of the Holmes Public Library for four years.
I hope to add the voice of a parent to the School Committee (currently only one of the five members of the committee has children in the school). I would like to look out for the best interests of our students and teachers while keeping an eye on the budget. In attending the School Committee meetings over the past year it seems that not all of the Committee members have the best interest of the students in mind when making decisions. I sincerely hope that adding my voice to the committee will change that.
Thank you for your time and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please keep an eye on the election news so you can make an informed decision on Election Day, May 14, 2016.
