This is a request from a passionate Germantown School parent and family
We hope you've enjoyed all of your holidays and are so thankful for you & your support of this great community! We haven't asked for participation in a while and NEED YOU NOW! (Please note: Next GSD School Board Mtg is Mon, 1/24 @ 7pm in GHS PAC. Please come!)
1) *****TAKE GSD SURVEY & SHARE IT*****
Please fill out this survey to let GSD know you DO NOT want this grant to be accepted. We understand the government will push masks, vaccines and SEL as a result! Keep parents in charge, not government! Review ESSER links for more info.
*****Safe Return Plan/ESSER III Stakeholder Input Survey (google.com)*****
Major News! .
GSD is listed with a dollar amount to receive (have received???) ESSER Grant Funding as part of a stimulus; which has compliance contingencies. Slinger, Kewaskum, Grafton, Cedarburg are also on the list. West Bend has ALREADY accepted these funds at the elementary level.
From a very quick review – ESSER involves mandatory masks, possible Covid clinics for student communities, and a lot of SEL from CASEL. (Which we worked so hard to NOT allow in GSD middle school.)
Read it, email the board and tell them we don’t want this grant! Speak at school board meetings and explain why you don’t want this grant. Action is needed!
2) GET READY TO VOTE ON February 15th Primary election
More info will be released, but please tell everyone you know to vote ONLY for Russ Ewert. He is a police officier in Milwaukee and has children in Germantown Schools. If you are allowed to vote for 2 please just vote for Russ as there is no benefit to give someone else a vote.
Spring General Election April 5th, 2022
Michael Loth, Brian Medved and hopefully Russ Ewert will be on the Spring Election Ballot. Again just vote for these three candidates. Other candidates want more mandates and less childhood for our kids. Keep freedom & strong education in GSD.
3) EDUCATE YOURSELF ON SEL & CASEL:
You might have heard of SEL, but below is another snapshot posted in The Germantown Direction:
If you're not yet familiar with SEL, please know that we, the parents of GSD, were successfully able to keep YOU, the parents, in charge of your child's emotional growth & development by keeping SEL & Casel OUT OF KMS. It's STILL in GSD elementary schools and the government is pushing for it HARD in all schools.
-With SEL, kids are taught to focus on emotions instead of logic.
-Feelings change all the time, so we must also teach them to use logic.
-Playing on kids' emotions & taking advantage of that brain center, teaching them parents don't know how to teach them to deal with things = Break down of the family and encourages distrust of parents.
-How to counter? = *strengthen the family!*
-Implies SEL's goal is to take care of emotions, but rather it exposes kids to adult content and takes away logical processing.
-SEL wants to drive out parents and Christian values.
-Goal = drive a wedge between parents. Diminish family importance. SEL is very cult-like, group-think mentality.
-Casel's goal is to push their agenda into communities & homes.
-Casel = a corrupt, strategic company. Comprehensive Sex Education does this too. Get community buy in + get States to mandate it's use.
-CDC promo: 'whole school, whole community, whole child.' SEL. Virtual school on display on their website; utopia = kids in school for longer days, cutting out parents and indoctrinating them at school.
***It doesn't take a village; it takes a family. We The Parents need to stop saying "it takes a village!"***
*Surveys determine programs. Results shared nationally and create national mandates "based on data."
**How do you think kids will answer after being "trained" at school via SEL, plus the questions are skewed???
*DO NOT FILL OUT THOSE SURVEYS!
*Programming heads will only use the parts they want anyway.
**Illegal to give a child a survey without first getting parental permission!*
*Make sure kids know to not fill out anything that's not academic or without discussing with you!
*Get to School Board Meetings!
*The agenda of these companies is very clear... and it's not good. Question the grants! This needs to be an ongoing conversation.
*Need schools of academia, not ideology.
-*Find your State's education code and laws; know them and educate each other. Don't do this by yourself. Go after answers with peace & joy. Come together in a united front of support as parents.
-We can make a difference, but we have to get to work!
-Freedom Project Academy is a great resource too.
Thank you for being leaders in the community. See you on January 24th.
