A Passion For Progress

Thank You, Let's Keep It Going!

This week I kicked off the 2017-18 "Because You Matter" school greeting tour at Lincoln Basset Community School.

I want to thank the volunteers from the neighborhood who joined me bright and early to cheer students on as they eagerly walked to their first day of class. Your commitment to our children can make all the difference in their lives.

Let's keep it going!

While at the school, we found out Lincoln Bassett's incoming kindergarten class begins on Thursday, August 31, 2017. I thought they deserve a proper welcome too, so we're going back at 8:00 a.m. Thursday morning to cheer them on.

Upcoming School Greetings:
August 31: 8:00 a.m. at Lincoln-Bassett School
October 2: 8:00 a.m. at Fair Haven School
November 15: 7:00 a.m. at Hill Regional Career High School
December 15: 7:15 a.m. at High School in the Community

Don't forget to check out the Because You Matter Tour on Facebook for photos, video and more.
