Nov. 12 through the 16 marks the annual observance of American Education Week.
Public schools are the backbone of our democracy, providing our young people with the tools they need to maintain our nations precious values of freedom, civility, and equality. Schools equip our children with the skills and abilities needed for a productive future.
Schools are the glue that hold communities together. They bring parents, children, educators, civic leaders and elected officials around a common enterprise.
All the adults in our schools, whether they are teachers, subs, bus drivers, cooks, associates, librarians, nurses or secretaries, work tirelessly to serve our children and communities with care and professionalism. And this doesn't go unnoticed.
We are truly blessed to have such caring and dedicated adults working with our children daily in Alta and Aurelia.
