Margaret Huron: Time to give thanks

At this time each year, we are all reminded to be grateful for the good things in our lives. This year many thanks goes to:

• The Yampa Valley Medical Center Foundation for its generous grant of $100,000, which allows our school district to provide professional support to children in need of emotional and/or behavioral guidance

• The teachers who work with the children of our community each day to teach, to inspire and to help them reach their individual potential

• The parents who are engaged in their children’s education and who volunteer their personal resources one by one in the schools or in committees such as PIC, SAC and Booster Club

• The bus drivers, maintenance crew, custodians and all who keep our children safe in an environment conducive to learning

• The administrative staff, secretaries and district personnel who provide support outside of the classroom, overcome daily challenges, and allow educational processes to advance

• The community members who support our distinguished school district, most recently by approving funding that will allow all kindergarten children equal access to public education. Thanks to the volunteers who serve on the Education Fund Board and the diverse members of CC4E who have dedicated their efforts to engaging the public in providing the best education possible to our children through informative forums, research on district issues and continued outreach.

• The Steamboat Today staff for reporting on complicated issues affecting our school district in a manner that is concise and factual.

Thank you for all the resources, thoughtful comments, passion for education and community support for learning that have provided an environment in which the Steamboat Springs School District can flourish and continue to achieve a reputation for excellence.
