I (Janet) approached the community relations director of the RPS 205 school district in regards to the endorsing of the SA by the district to allow an official partnership as well as encourage and reward students to give to this Christian organization. I asked them to sever the partnership and to sponsor the rock river valley food pantry instead. I was told by Earl Dobsin that the district refuses and I should take the matter up on the legal system.
Please advocate for the separation of church and state at board meeting 6:45pm or write to the school board members,committees and interim superintendent as well as the papers in regards to the Salvation Army “HOLIDAY MEAL” box food drive and the official partnership RPS 205 & SA has. Tell them why it is unconstitutional and must be changed.
