Dear Parents,

Voces de la Frontera is sponsoring a trip to Madison on Saturday, February 26 to fight a dangerous bill that would severely restrict the rights of teachers and other state workers. All students in public school will be negatively affected if this bill passes. Students and parents: come join us in Madison to show we will NOT tolerate this type of legislation in Wisconsin, and the community stands behind our educators!

The Racine bus leaves from Pick ‘n Save (Rapids Drive) at 10 am. Milwaukee buses leave from Rufus King HS at 10 am and Voces de la Frontera (1027 S. 5 St.) at 11 am. We will travel to Madison, attend a statewide gathering in front of the Capitol, and return home by 6:30 pm. Free pizza is provided. There is no cost to ride the
bus.

Please send the permission slip below with your child when they come to board the bus, and consider joining us yourself! Any questions, please call me at 414-469-9206.
