Vote yes for local bond/levy issues
It is our pleasure to endorse the Sunnyside School District
special levy/bond issues. We know that the passage of these issues will make a
tremendous difference in the education of all of our students. We have seen the
positive results of the previous special levy. The purchase of curriculum
materials and supplies, safety officers and technology enhancements alone have
been a wonderful assistance to our students and staff.
We ask for your consideration and yes vote on the 2004 bond
and special levy. Taxes will increase 20¢ ($1.41 to $1.61 per $1,000 of home
valuation). The district will receive $3,744,357 annually for four years. Also,
$40 million in new construction and modernization projects will occur.
Sunnyside School District voters' approval of these issues
will support students and building projects for years and years to come. We
need your help!
Please vote yes—bond and levy—Feb. 3.

Be sure to vote yes on the Sunnyside School District levy
By doing so we improve our district. With the yes on the
levy we get matching state funds and this will help with classes and materials.
The bond gives us more and better schools, as we are growing
and need the space. A good working area creates a better atmosphere for our
kids to learn in.
Sunnyside School District has not deceived us on funding
before, and is now helping to make the district even better for only a few
cents per thousand (of assessed valuation).
As a past school director I have kept an eye on what happens
in the district and feel very comfortable saying, "Vote yes on the levy
and bond. It really is the cheapest way to improve our district."

didn't stop the people from coming in to donate the much needed blood. We had
66 presenters and two first-time donors. Three were unable to give, leaving 63
units collected. Because of their generosity, 126 people will have another
chance at life. Without you this drawing would not be possible.
