Good Job Kids! (and Ms. Ferreria) What an awesome learning experience for these kids. This is why I love Pleasanton; it’s the pride in the community in which we live. Keep up the great work and may others see this (adults and kids alike) and do the same.

Thanks

Community service should probably be made an integral part of the curriculum for every grade level, especially for the middle and high schoolers. It'll enhance our youth's educational experience by helping others and instill in them the sense of responsibility for the greater good of the community.

Great work, Ms. Ferreria.
