Truckee Tahoe Sunshine letters

Truckee High says thanks to Truckee RotaryThe students at Truckee High School would like to thank Truckee Rotary Foundation for their donation to our class. One of our math classes this semester used an online math course to supplement the textbook and activities in a math class. The focus was to identify specific topics for each student and provide an avenue for them to master the concepts, at home and school. Some of the comments from the children: “it [the program] made me understand skills I did not get before,” “it taught me how to understand math in a different way,” “I like how it is at our own pace,” “I liked working from my computer at home.” The students are very comfortable with technology. We are thankful that our Truckee Rotary Foundation chose to support our efforts.Sincerely, Erika Murphy, Algebra 1A, Truckee High School Math DepartmentThanks Phebe BellThe Tahoe Lake and Kings Beach PTO would like to thank Phebe Bell from the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation for the gracious anonymous donation that provided our beautiful bulletin boards for the fourth and fifth graders at NTMS. The bulletin boards have helped to add a touch of elementary school atmosphere and given a spot for children to show off and demonstrate their accomplishments. Our further appreciation extends to Rob Sproehnle and Tim Dvoracek of JRS Construction in Tahoe City for donating their time and tools for installing these Boards up and down the hallway.Thank you very much!, Syd EarleySierra College is appreciativeSierra College Tahoe-Truckee would like to extend a big thank you to the businesses who donated generous prizes for the winners of our recent Student Art Show: The Carmel Gallery, Drunken Monkey Restaurant, The Office Boss (Bradbury’s), Pacific Crest Restaurant, The Store, and The Squeeze In.

Not only has our community grown in sustainable and environmentally responsible practices, but you continue to support the Tahoe Truckee Earth Day event. As the sun gods smiled upon us, as the music played through the village and the Trashion Show was underway andamp;#8212; we looked out into the crowd of thousands and were so pleased at the community support for this event.We want to personally thank everyone who has been and is still involved with the Tahoe Truckee Earth Day event, and all the many events that happened that week, including SYRCL’s Wild and Scenic Film Festivals, Squaw Valley Institute’s speaker and Slow Food Tahoe’s event at Bistro 22. We are proud of our volunteer committee, business partners and sponsors that made these significant community events a reality. Without the generosity and hard work of our many volunteers, the Tahoe Earth Day Foundation couldn’t do what we do. In addition, the Squaw Village Neighborhood Company has been an essential part of the success of this event, and we are so thankful for their support over the years.In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, we encourage you to examine what you can do individually to help make a change. Whether simply supporting local farmers by purchasing locally, or cutting down on the daily paper towel usage at home andamp;#8211; we can all make a difference even in very small ways.Please save the date for the 41st year of Earth Day andamp;#8212; and we hope to see you all again on Saturday, April 23, 2011.Lisa Cashel and Emily Williams, Co-Chairs, Tahoe Truckee Earth DaySWEP plants seed of environmentalismGlenshire Elementary would like to thank Shelly Harris, SWEP, the Villager, and the high school’s Envirolution Club for a successful Earth day.
