To the Editor:

Alameda Education Foundation had the opportunity to thank Alameda public schools teachers and parent volunteers at Salute to Education on April 25. Each spring, Salute to Ed recognizes innovative programs in our public schools and honors the teachers and the parents who make this innovation possible. Whether the program involves teaching science in school gardens, using the latest strategies to reach struggling students or helping high school students build robots, these program coordinators contribute countless hours that make a difference.

I would like to thank everyone who made Salute to Education such a successful, fun event. That includes our volunteers on Friday evening, as well as the staff at Rhythmix Cultural Works and Café Q. Additional thanks go to Charles and Thierry Olken of Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine. A complete list of the individuals and businesses that generously contributed to Salute to Education are listed at our website.
