Hello All -

The Holyoke School sub-Committee will meet Wednesday, February 24, 2010 to discuss the adoption of a comprehensive sexual health curriculum in the schools. This meeting is not open to the public, but it is the perfect time to demonstrate community support for comprehensive sex education with a thick stack of signed letters that will be presented to the committee. If you live in Holyoke, or know someone who does, please do sign it, and pass this information on to your friends.

If you have collected letters, or would like to hand in a letter you have signed, please email or call me, and I can make arrangements to get the letter from you.

Thank you all so much for your efforts in this area -
