I am fairly active in our community and hear about a lot of the challenges that we all face these days. One of the many bright spots in my life today is the Healdsburg High School and the good that I see pouring out of it. I dropped my daughter off today and you can see the positive energy everywhere. This morning, Friday morning the PA system was blasting "we will, we will rock you" by Queen. It is spirit week and tonight is homecoming. Our football team is doing well and is only one of the 17 sports teams that we have currently. AP classes are abundant. We have ROP construction classes, a deep arts program. The list goes on and on. Essentially it boils down to what every other district has cut, our Healdsburg Education Foundation has saved and made to flourish. Even the statistics on our college bound kids are skewed. We have a larger amount of graduates going to the harder to get into colleges than the easier. We have the highest amount of scholarship money in the area. We do put a lot into our schools but we do get a lot out. My hat is off to all that have made our schools in Healdsburg a great place to be a kid!
