Holiday Message 2018
With the holidays approaching and the 2018-19 school year well underway, I want to take this opportunity to share my appreciation for everyone involved with Solano County’s public schools. As the County Superintendent of Schools, I am privileged to not only experience the outstanding services provided by the Solano County Office of Education (SCOE) but also to see the great things happening in our local school districts.
When I visit the districts and walk onto school campuses across the county, I am struck by the profound importance of our work. The skill and care exhibited by dedicated educators fills me with awe and gratitude. Their actions also give me a deep feeling of hopefulness for the future of our children and our ability to meet the needs of every student that is entrusted to us.
As we approach the holidays, it is important to remember how much we have to be thankful for in Solano County. We have great kids, we have families that love their children, we have public and private agencies dedicated to supporting struggling families, and we have a public school system that truly cares about every student. I am extremely grateful to all those who help make Solano a great place to live, raise a family, and for kids to learn.
My wish is that you continue to have a great school year and a wonderful holiday season full of gratitude and renewal.
This year’s countywide Stuff the Bus campaign, held June 28 – July 28, 2018, proved to be another huge success. Backpacks continued to arrive through mid-September. Due to this outpouring of our local community, we were able to collect 761 backpacks for our homeless and foster youth, an increase from the 312 backpacks collected in 2017. “We appreciate the commitment from our Solano County community partners. Together we are working to create opportunities for our deserving youth,” says Solano County Superintendent of Schools Lisette Estrella-Henderson.
