I want to share Dewey-Humboldt's best-kept secret.
My child attends the best school in the Humboldt Unified School District. When I ask her about her day at school, her response most days is awesome!
Her education at this school has instilled a passion for reading, mathematics, music, writing and citizenship.
Principal Cole Young just announced Humboldt Elementary School is now an excelling school, the highest score given.
Being an active parent at Humboldt Elementary, I know the hard work that goes into receiving this wonderful rating.
I thank Mr. Young and his staff for their hard work and the quality education that our children are receiving as a result of their efforts at Humboldt Elementary School.
Every year my daughter has had amazing teachers to share their knowledge and love of learning.
The support staff on campus, front office, cafeteria, teacher's aides, and maintenance are all there because they care about these children. I thank all of them.
To quote Fred M. Rogers (that's right, Mr. Rogers): "Those of us in this world to educate - to care for young children - have a special calling; a calling that has very little to do with the collection of expensive possessions but has a lot to do with the worth inside of heads and hearts."
