Thanks for your support!

Letter to the Editor

On March 19, the Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation successfully held its third annual benefit breakfast at Mount Si High School.

I’d like to thank actress Jean Smart, who flew in from California to speak to the crowd in support of the foundation’s mission to enhance the excellence of our Snoqualmie Valley public schools. I’d also like to thank the musicians of the Mount Si High Jazz Ensemble and their director, Adam Rupert; and the chefs of the Mount Si Culinary Arts Club and their instructor, Laura Tarp, for their presentations. All these students gave up a precious opportunity to sleep in on a school late-arrival day in order to support the foundation.

Thank you also to students Jess Sanford and Sean Macrae, who shared their personal experiences and the benefits derived from a foundation-funded activity. Snoqualmie Elementary School’s teacher Ms. Dana Nohavec and her student artists deserve praise and thanks for the incredibly beautiful watercolor masterpieces they created for our hosts and corporate sponsors.

Thank you also to our major corporate sponsors and in-kind donors: A&A Building Services, Cam West Development, Claffey’s Painting, Country Junction Preschool, Georgia Pacific, Hudson Bay Insulation, John Day Homes, North Fork Enterprises, Quadrant Homes, Tom Armour – Snoqualmie Ridge neighborhood specialist, Cascade Office Supply and Countryside Floral and Garden.

Lastly, I’d like to thank all those who came out and attended the breakfast on that rainy morning in support of our schools. I continue to be awed and humbled by the generosity of the people and businesses of our Snoqualmie Valley! Thanks for your support.
