What They’re Saying
The founding fathers wrote about a system of community schools that would safeguard the principles of democracy and ensure a shot at the American dream for every child in our nation. In the many decades since the founding of our republic, more and more of society’s woes have been laid at the schoolhouse door. Because we love our children and our community, the people working in our schools gladly accept this responsibility – but we can’t do it alone. The Education Foundation of Eagle County has been an essential partner and absolute lifesaver in supporting our schools in meeting these noble goals.

Please share my thanks with the entire EFEC board for the generous funding of our grant to support early literacy. The additional literacy support for early grades will enable Eagle Valley Elementary to meet students’ individual needs and to raise student achievement. It is wonderful to live and work in a community that cares so deeply about education.
