Hi Mr. ------------,
I thought it would be easier to email you since it said on the website that you respond more quickly to email :) My name is Peggy Robertson and my son, Sam, is planning to attend -------- next fall - he will be in 8th grade. He has been enrolled at the Denver Waldorf School since the age of four, so this will be quite a transition for him! I was hoping to visit -------- next week before you close for the summer and would love for Sam to get a peek in the school to get a feel for it. Do you have any availability next week on Thursday morning?
I also thought I should give you a little background about me - I am a former public school teacher and I am one of the founders of United Opt Out National, the movement to end corporate education reform. If there is anything I can do to support you at --------- please let me know. I will be opting Sam out of state testing (TCAP and MAPS) as well as any pretest booklets to prepare for these tests. I wanted to let you know upfront so that it didn't come as a shock once Sam is enrolled. I know that Littleton is having minimal consequences from high stakes testing compared to the rest of the country, but I believe, as many parents and educators do, that if we halt high stakes testing (tied to teacher evaluation, school closings, holding students back a grade due to one standardized test score) we could begin to preserve and improve public schools and end the privatization that is occurring right now.
Thanks Mr. ------- and I look forward to meeting you! Sam is so excited to attend --------. Let me know what you think about next week and have a great morning.
Administrator for United Opt Out National
