MOT CHARTER SCHOOL HAS ONCE AGAIN ACHIEVED THE RATING OF A SUPERIOR SCHOOL!
Good Afternoon MOT Charter Families,
The school year is coming to a fast close, but don't wind down yet! There is a lot of learning to go.
Coming home with your child today is a flyer with information about the referendum for the Appoquinimink School District. Please get out and support this referendum on May 9. Like all schools, MOT has experienced dramatic cuts in state and federal education dollars over the past few years. As a result, our budget is stretched very tight. If Appoquinimink is forced to make the cuts that they have projected, MOT's local funds will decrease, thus aggravating an already tough situation. So, please get out and vote YES for the referendum May 9.
