Hero Reports From Around the District

"Did you know at Spring Creek and Matanzas the office staff helps make Christmas possible for many school families each December? Through campus food drives, many care packages are created and distributed to help our families get through the winter break. Additionally, toys are collected and matched up to families with the help of our teachers and the Toys for Tots programs. Toys and gifts are supplemented with additional shopping from teachers, retired teachers, and families of teachers. Finally, when the need is too great, which can often be the case at this time of year, the schools reach out to other community organizations to match up families with resources, whether that be finding short term housing, gathering basic necessities, or connecting to mental health services. This is a team effort on the part of the staff at Spring Creek and Matanzas, who consider the work a vital part of educating the students they serve." -Certificated Staff Member

"Mrs. Rains, Mr. Barclay, Mr. Lister, Mr. Cosgrove, Mrs. Conrad and Mrs. Matthiessen are wonderful helping students who struggle. They’re there to help them and go the extra mile to help them be successful."  RVCS Sequoia Campus Parent

"I would like to report, with the deepest gratitude, the daily and truly heroic efforts of our Calistoga Road Crossing Guard Beth. Beth watches over our families, kids and parents, as we cross an ever increasingly dangerous road twice a day. She knows the names of almost everyone who crosses, takes interest in our lives inside and outside of school, attends school activities, and shows her spirit and support for us every single day. The quality of her character demonstrates care and concern above and beyond the call of duty. In turn, we all care about Beth. For example, when Beth takes a leave or sick day everyone wonders out loud, "Where's Beth?" Please take this recommendation to pay tribute to her continued efforts, if not for the first time, then again and again and again. Beth has set the standards incredibly high, she is not just an employee doing a job, she is invaluable, she is a landmark, and she is Sequoia Family."   Sequoia School Parent

"Mrs. Reno is our daughter's hero. She is so patient, loving, and thoughtful to her whole class. My daughter comes home saying nothing but great things about Mrs. Reno. One of her favorite things to play is school and she imitates Mrs. Reno."  Madrone School Parent
