Good report card

I am writing to publicly recognize and thank many of the restaurants in Malibu for their donations of a lunch or dinner for two as holiday gifts to the teachers at Webster School. This is the 6th year that I have asked for these gifts and the number of donations has grown steadily to a total of 26. The restaurants participating this year were: Allegria, BeauRivage, Coogie’s (2), Duke’s, Fins Malibu (Bambu), Giorgio, Gladstone’s, Granita, The Gray Whale, Guido’s, John’s Garden, Marmalade, Michael’s (3), Paradise Cove Beach Cafe (3), PierView, Reel Inn, Saddle Peak Lodge, Spruzzo, Taverna Tony, Tra Di Noi and Tutto Bene.

It is tremendously gratifying for our teachers to be recognized by the community in this way, especially in this particularly difficult year for local businesses. Many businesses and individuals make special efforts to help others, especially children, during the holidays. I applaud each and every person who finds time or money to help those in need. Teachers make a career of helping children and their families and they do this with great skill, energy, and dedication every day in schools throughout our country. Every teacher I know is richly deserving of a nice meal at one of the fine restaurants in Malibu and I am very proud to see this becoming an annual tradition in our community.

Our school is consistently supported by this community in many ways throughout the year. We strongly feel that both families with children in our school and others throughout Malibu value and appreciate our work. Our students benefit directly every day from this support and involvement. The morale of our staff is also affected in a very positive way. I know I speak for all of us at Webster when I say that we feel fortunate to work in this community and privileged to teach your children. Happy New Year to all and many, many thanks.
