Fifth Annual Reach for the Stars a HUGE SUCCESS!

We are excited to announce that we raised $42,000!  This will enable us to fund the wish lists from all 19 classrooms. A huge thank you to the 200 community supporters who attended our fifth annual Reach for the Stars.

Our guests enjoyed delicious BBQ from Ric’s Righteous Ribs and had an opportunity to learn about our functional life skills curriculum, our speech and language department and participate in a Go Math! lesson on our new mimeo boards.
Pat Burt, the mayor of Palo Alto, welcomed everyone and introduced Le Levy who spoke about Michael Gennette, our STAR award honoree. Michael has been the Executive Director at AchieveKids for 15 years and is retiring at the end of June. Ryan Eisenberg, the incoming Executive Director, was on hand to greet everyone.

A heartfelt thank you to all of our supporters, donors, volunteers and staff for a very successful event.
