In a well attended all school meeting tonight with SE District Director Kelly Aramaki, the Orca community spoke loud and clear about how we want our middle school to remain open.
High points in the meeting included Head Teacher Donte Felder and two of his students speaking passionately about the amazing middle school program at Orca.
At the beginning of the meeting Kelly said that the district would be conducting surveys to find out whether the community supported closure of the middle school, but by the end of the meeting, Kelly said that based on the overwhelming support we had shown for the middle school, the district would abandon it's plans to look into closing the middle school.
Orca will remain a K-8, where we all belong! Thanks to everyone for coming out.
