Thank you!

On Tuesday, April 2 residents overwhelmingly passed Proposition U with nearly 70% of the vote. The renovations that will take place with Prop U funds are a wonderful gift to our students and teachers and also to the community. Thank you to everyone exercised their right to vote.

The Prop U campaign committee worked hard to inform voters of the facts on Prop U, but it took the help of many involved citizens to spread the message and motivate voters to go to the polls.  On behalf of the Prop U campaign committee I’d like to thank the citizens who supported Prop U and helped get out the vote. Whether it was handing out literature, posting a sign in their yard, talking to others in the community, or sending emails in support of Prop U – you helped make a difference in our community and in the lives of many children. So, from the bottom of my heart...

Mother Teresa once said, "I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." The support U. City continues to provide our schools is impressive and a testament to the good work going on in our schools. Let’s keep the momentum going. There are opportunities big and small to get involved and create more ripples. Here are just a few ideas:
  • Join the PTO at your child’s school and/or volunteer for a committee
  • Participate in the school district’s discussion on current and future plans for Early Childhood Education in U. City.
  • Work in the school gardens with U. City in Bloom.
  • Volunteer your time to work in the schools. Volunteers are needed in such areas as tutoring, library assistance, school stores, and office help.
  • Donations are always needed. Items like books for the “Take It” libraries, items for the PBIS (positive reinforcement programs), food for special events, or gifts the high school graduation party.

There are many ways to get involved in our schools. As the proverb says, “It takes a village.” And I am so proud of our village. Thank you!
