This has been an amazing journey! Our little school district has managed to overcome some pretty big obstacles and create a path that will allow us to do something remarkable. Thanks to ALL of you, we are on our way to securing a better future for our students.
It is time to step it up a notch!! We need to start talking to our local businesses! Our businesses know the importance of a good education equally as much as US parents do.
On March 11, 2010, a school district in Oklahoma received 3.4million dollars, from local businesses, to help their public schools.
“The importance of building exceptional public schools cannot be understated. As a CEO recruiting professional talent to Enid, I frequently see the significance of a strong school system in attracting and retaining talented people for our community."
I believe our little community, here in Vacaville, can do the same. We have some of the greatest businesses around. Our businesses have supported our students in the past, it is time again. Let's pull together and rally their support!
I would like to leave you with this thought:
"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."
