Truckee Tahoe Sunshine letters

The fourth grade class at Glenshire Elementary would like to extend its most sincere gratitude to both the staff of Teichert Aggregates and to Missy Mohler of SWEP. Our field trip to the Teichert site was a huge success. Students were able to take part in land reclamation via tree planting, environmental stewardship while monitoring a section of the Little Truckee River and an amazing tour of the plant machinery. By participating in this hands-on experience, I am certain the learning will last a lifetime. As a public school teacher, I rely on these community partnerships to provide a high quality education.Sincerely,Stephanie Bacon, teacher, Glenshire Elementary School

The Truckee High School Booster club has had a very successful fund raising year thanks to the continued success of our Varsity and Junior Varsity football teams. Our snack bar at the Surprise Stadium raises money for Boosters, which in turn financially supports all the teams and clubs at the high school. We would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their support this year: The Blue Coyote for their fabulous home game breakfasts, Mike at Truckee Pizza, Spud and the girls at Spud’s Produce, Stohlgren Brothers Distributors, and all the parents, students and coaches who volunteered their time towards our continued success. Thanks everyone!Lori Tucker and the Truckee Boosters
