Kudos & Kindness: Lake Tahoe Unified School District says thank you

I wish to express my deepest thanks to following:

The Lake Tahoe Education Foundation (LTEF) and the El Dorado Ag In the Classroom, among others, who helped to fund the Tahoe Farm Day for the third- and fourth-grade classes. There were over 30 stations that students were able to experience.

LTEF was also the major funder for the Wonders of Waters Educational Experience ( WOWEE), which had kindergarten through sixth-grade students rotating through three stations at each grade level to learn about water and our environment.

We are so very lucky to have such an amazing foundation supporting us. In addition, The Tahoe Fund, along with the South Lake Tahoe Rotary Club helped to fund our high school students’ participation in the Tahoe Basin Watershed Education Summit (TBWES). This program allows students the opportunity to learn about the Lake Tahoe watershed while collecting data for real restoration projects and working alongside professionals in science related fields.

Our STEEC group (South Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition) — which consists of over 20 local, federal and community agencies, nonprofits and businesses — provides most of the presenters for these stations (and they are an amazing group of people), along with some outstanding community volunteers. We are truly blessed to live in a community that supports the education of our youth in such powerful ways. My heartfelt thanks goes to the many ways you all contribute.
