Thank-you, Mrs. Gatehouse for continuing your good work with "gate" students. My daughter was one of your students, back in the day, when funding was still available for the gate program. It is a shame that that these funds have dried up and gone away. I am so happy you are still in the Pleasanton School District and have expanded your dedication to this, now nonexistence, program. You are a treasure.

Thank you for your kind words, Mrs. Todd! I remember your daughter from back in the day in 6th grade block class and your son from back in the day in Robotics Club. Please give them my best wishes.

Oops! I think I have that wrong! Now I remember that I am thinking of another Todd family! Your daughter is E.S., correct?
