GATE donors really backed up parents

Dear Editor,

Public school budgets are tighter than ever, and many programs have had to be cut or reduced. Community support and involvement translates into better opportunities for our children.

At Luigi Aprea Fundamental School, several local business contributed funds to help start an after-school enrichment program for our gifted and talented students. I would like to recognize the following corporate members of our community for their contributions to our GATE (Gifted And Talented Education) program: Safeway, Chili’s, Alain Pinel and Coldwell Banker.

Thanks to your support and parent volunteer efforts, our GATE program was a success and the children were the winners.

Michelle Montez,

Luigi Aprea Fundamental School GATE Task Force
