It takes a village

Last Wednesday I was able to attend the ceremony/reception honoring the hundreds of tutors who volunteer for the San Carlos Healthy Cities tutoring program. Also, yesterday I had the opportunity to sit through the Arundel PTA awards reception where the PTA honored many of the parent volunteers who work so hard day in and day out at the schools. As a former Board member of the San Carlos Educational Foundation, I certainly appreciate the thousands of person-hours it takes by so many parents to keep the school running. It reminds me that despite how poorly education is funded in our state and in our country, we should be really grateful to the fabulous parents in the community (including my wife) who donate so much, both in time and money. The San Carlos schools would be a very different place without that. Thanks to you all!
