I want to thank everyone involved in supporting our local public schools this year. It was another productive and challenging year for our students and teachers. It took true community spirit to maintain the excellence we demand in educating our children. My kids and their peers have benefited much from the dedication of teachers, administrators, volunteers, and local businesses who have given their time and resources to educate our community.
Thanks especially to BBRS Convention Center, Baskin Robbins, Blockbuster Video, China Town Restaurant, Danville Office Equipment, Danville Cinemas 8, Family Medical Clinic of Danville, Genesis Salon, Guadalajara No. 2, Main Street Furniture, Les Letton, Maple Tree Gallery, Mark Ward Optical, McDowell Wellness Center, Nationwide Insurance, Paul Knudsen of Mary Kay Cosmetics, P.S. & Company, Ricashades, Rumi Spa, Sam Goody, Susan Salinas of Coldwell Banker, Thoroughbred Threads, Pharaoh's Pizza, Linda Bunch and all the parents for their generous donations to the Bate Middle School Eight Grade Night. The students enjoyed their time together before moving on to the challenges of high school. We will not forget your generosity in supporting our kids.
