We would like to showcase a letter of appreciation from one of Vashon High School’s most committed and effective teachers, Shamonda Owens.
Shamonda has seen an increase in student attendance as a result from our juice donations. In her own words,
“Your positive rewards for attendance helps us continue in our mission and to assist those students within the building to get to class on time and to get our attendance data up.”
She goes on to say,
“I would also like to thank you for the refrigerator that help us to keep the juices cold and to give more to students as attendance went up to 80%…”
There’s still a lot more work to be done. Shamonda admits that while attendance HAS improved, she would ideally like to see it hit at least 92%.
Challenge accepted. Prepared will continue to aid the efforts of dedicated teachers like Shomanda any way we can.
Just like those juices incentivize students to show up to class, letters of appreciation from Vashon High’s best and brightest incentivize us to fight the good fight.
