Orchard Heights staff sent this photo to South Kitsap board members. Other elementary school staff members did the same. This was to remind them that split classes are going to be nearly impossible to teach once Common Core Standards begin to be implemented. Sidney Glen members gathered outside to share their numbers including a kindergarten with 29.
Marching SKEA members head out of SKHS down to Mile Hill Road to share their numbers. It is not at all unusual for secondary students to have 25 in their classes. Imagine this teacher’s classroom each day as she tries to ascertain whether her students are able to converse with one another in Spanish.
SKEA members wave to honking supporters on Mile Hill Road.
Special thanks to members of the WEA Chorus for getting things rolling and keeping them going with class size songs.
