This is the fourth year I have had the pleasure of writing this letter in support of the Brookings-Harbor Education Foundation. Once again, they are funding awards for first-, second-, and third-place winners in our Oregon Battle of the Books competition.
The foundation's generosity allows winners in each of our three district schools to be recognized for their outstanding dedication to reading and team collaboration.
Winners will advance to the Oregon regional competition in March 2020, battling against winning teams from five other Oregon counties. Last year, the Azalea Middle School team placed at regionals and represented our district at the state competition.
The foundation's support of this reading program and numerous other teacher grant requests is a tremendous reflection of this community's support for our school district and those working to enhance students' educational growth.
Thanks, Brookings-Harbor Education Foundation, for making this possible! We are deeply appreciative.
