Sunshine Letter: Big thanks to Excellence in Education!
November 2, 2016
I would like to thank the Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation for being the donor of funds in support of Challenge Day workshops for the freshmen at Truckee High and at North Tahoe High.
I had the great pleasure to participate as an adult volunteer for two days this past week, and, as always, was profoundly moved by the compassion and camaraderie exhibited by our young people at the end of the day.
Challenge Days encourage young people to "Be the Change you wish to see in the world." They are exemplary efforts to teach emotional/social cooperation, and to eliminate bullying behavior. Thank you, Excellence in Education Foundation!
