$100,000 for Orange Schools: Imagine the Possibilities (Poll)

With enough votes, Orange Public Schools could win $100,000 from Patch. What would you spend the money on?

Doing more with less has become somewhat of a mantra in the current economic climate of cash-strapped municipalities. Every dollar spent is being scrutinized like never before and cuts to programs and services have been put on the table and stacked up against a communal desire to maintain a top-notch education for our children.

So just imagine what an extra $100,000 could do for Orange Public Schools ... maybe new textbooks or a couple teachers, or perhaps funds for extracurricular activities, the arts, and athletic programs. No doubt, it's exciting to think about the possibilities and the positive impact the money could have on students.

Yet in order to get to the point of turning possibility into reality, the Orange community must rally to get out the vote in Patch's Deck the House contest. The $100,000 will go to the house with the most votes at the end of the day on Jan. 8, so it is in everyone's interest to vote every day and to tell everyone they know to vote, too.

Supt. Lynn McMullin believes this money would greatly help teachers in their jobs with the addition of devices that compliment tools already in use in the school system.

Come on people it's for the kids in the Schools. Give them something to be proud of. Win or lose at least the kids will know everyone in Orange vote. (Last chance turn the TV off and VOTE) Time is running out. Have you voted yet? I know I have every day...
