The Referendum Passes!

On behalf of the Hopewell Valley Regional School District, we wish to express our deep gratitude to the voters of Hopewell Valley who supported our facilities and maintenance referendum on September 27. We appreciate your confidence in this spending plan and we pledge to continue to work hard in seeing that your tax dollars are well spent. We would also like to thank everyone who assisted us with getting the word out. We are very fortunate to have so many dedicated and talented residents who are willing and eager to help the district.

To those who could not support the referendum, we urge you to share your reasons with us so that we may work on earning your confidence and support in the future. My email address is thomassmith@hvrsd.org.
