A Note from our Executive Director
In the blink of an eye, summer is over! Teachers are putting the finishing touches on their classrooms and on Wednesday, students will start the 2019-20 school year.  I am so excited as a parent to watch my child's interests and abilities grow this year through his education at NVUSD.  As the Foundation's Executive Director, I'm also very excited to see our organization's growth this year. Our Foundation was awarded a wonderful grant from the Napa Valley Vintners from funds raised at Auction Napa Valley , to support our work with college & career readiness, student wellness, and more. This grant will help us launch some pretty exciting work. We are working closely with the school district to help grow programs that will ensure every student has a gold-standard college and career exploration experience before they graduate. What does this mean? It means more internships, more career mentoring, more college and career exploration programming across grades. Schools have some of these components in place already, but our goal this year is to help the school district build a program that can, in the coming years, serve all students in a meaningful way. And this is only ONE of our amazing programs - we have so much in store with wellness, music and more. It is going to be a fantastic year. Thank you to the Napa Valley Vintners for their generous investment in our work, and to all of our amazing donors and sponsors for believing in our students and our schools.

In appreciation,
Jennifer Stewart, MPA
Executive Director
