Everything we do here at the Bristol Warren Education Foundation is teacher led. Without them, we wouldn't know the needs of our students. By applying for grants, they help us target our resources in the most efficient way, which maximize the benefit to our students. This week, let us all show appreciation for the many teachers in our lives. They do so much, and ask so little. They ensure the continued success of this wonderful community we live in.

Please read this important note from Andy Tyska, the Chair of the Joint Finance Committee, regarding tomorrow's budget meeting. All are encouraged to attend. ================ LISTEN, THINK, and ENGAGE at the JFC meeting. Please attend the Joint Finance Committee (JFC) Meeting on Thursday, March 16, 7:00 pm , at the Mt. Hope High School Auditorium. At this meeting, the JFC will consider action on the proposed budget from the Bristol Warren Regional School District Committee. I would anticipate spirited discussion on our obligation as a community to prioritize the education of our children, the affordability of living in our community, and the level of services our town provides. Practically, the meeting is about allocating the funds which the School Committee is requesting to continue the investments in our high performing schools. However, the reality is, in order to meet this obligation as requested by the School Committee, there will be significant impacts on the future consideration of our municipal budget. Although the actions at the JFC meeting are not specific to the resulting tax rate, they are related and will no doubt have a impact on the ability to minimize tax increases and provide high quality town services. The actions of the JFC must be strategic. Do we fund both the school and municipal budgets in way that asks everyone to do more with less? Our do we decisively prioritize the investments in the education of our children in our community, show our confidence in the ability of our School Committee to plan and execute on a budget that allows us to demand results. Please attend the meeting, listen, think, and engage. Andy Tyska Bristol Warren Joint Finance Committee, Chairman
