Thank you for your generous support for Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) and our own Puppy-in-Training Sol. This year's two-week Dollar Drive fundraiser donated a record breaking $11,077 towards Sol's care, graduate training, and placement support. Over the past seven years, the Make It Pawsible service project has raised an amazing $56,473 for CCI. The students in Mr. Laraway's seven classes deeply appreciate your strong support. Thanks so much... You've Made It Pawsible!

We want to thank the entire Silver Oak community of students, parents, colleagues, friends, and family for the superb retirement party in our honor. You clearly put a lot of time and effort into making sure the party was a hit — and it was! What a memory! There was such positive, loving energy. The well wishes made us feel important and appreciated. Thank you also for adding to the joy of our retirement with your generous travel gifts. We feel very fortunate to have taught these many years in a community we love. Mrs. Kim Roberts, Mrs. Lori Murnin, & Mr. Bill Laraway

Avoid the "Summer Slide" in reading scores... make reading fun for your child this summer! Does that sound tough? It may be easier than you think to help encourage reading as a chosen activity during these coming week off from school. Read advice and guidance from Jen Robinson, former PTO LAR Chair, and longtime child "bookworm" advocate.
