CITIZENS FOR CHERRY CREEK SCHOOLS SUPPORT MEASURES 4A & 4B THIS FALL!

Support Measures 4A & 4B on your ballot this fall! It is up to us to preserve excellence for Cherry Creek Schools! 4A will help keep our excellent teachers and maintain small class sizes. Learn more at citizensforcherrycreekschools.com.

Measure 4A would raise $35 million in operational revenue to maintain teachers, nurses, and mental health workers and stave off the worst impacts of our budget deficit.

Measure 4B would raise $150 million for bond projects, including a mental health day treatment facility, security upgrades, innovative renovations at high schools, critical maintenance projects at schools, and a possible new school in the eastern part of the district to alleviate overcrowding.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE A YARD SIGN SUPPORTING 4A&B, PLEASE REACH OUT TO PAULA HRUSKA AT: hruskaka@yahoo.com
