On Saturday, March 14, Saturday, March 21, and Saturday, March 28, more than 100 Wentzville School District parents, students, staff members and concerned citizens went door to door to inform residents about Proposition E on the April 7 ballot.
The volunteers (including district administrators and a board of education member) met at St. Gianna Church on March 14 and Morning Star Church on March 21 for maps and campaign materials before visiting neighborhoods in Wentzville, Lake Saint Louis, O’Fallon, Dardenne Prairie, and Foristell.
Proposition E is an investment in the students of the Wentzville School District, and voter approval will provide the necessary funds to:
- Build a new elementary school;
- Add classrooms to Discovery Ridge Elementary, Duello Elementary, Lakeview Elementary and Holt High School;
- Build phase two of Liberty High School;
- Provide equipment and furniture for new classrooms;
- Enhance security throughout the District;
- Update science and FACS classrooms at Wentzville Middle;
- Purchase land for future school sites.
“I feel it’s important for us as parents to be involved and do what we need to in order to help our children and our community,” said Laura Ives, a WSD parent and teacher. “My kids will be in this school system for years to come, and I’ve witnessed the enrollment growth first hand. I want to be sure that all of our students have adequate classroom space and facilities, and that’s why I’m voting Yes on Prop E!”
Wentzville continues to be the fastest growing school district in the state, averaging more than 600 new students every year since 2000.
