Alpine Education Foundation 4th Annual President’s Reception 9/26/14

To celebrate the start of the new school year and introduce new educational opportunities for local students and ways guests could help, the Alpine Education Foundation hosted their fourth annual President’s Reception Friday, September 26th in the lovely outdoor setting of AEF President Colin Campbell’s private residence, the Campbell Creek Ranch.

The lawn and garden venue and mild Fall evening offered a beautiful backdrop for delicious hors d’oeuvres catered by Anthony Donnelson, owner, and Byron Wilson, executive chef of Alpine’s Greek Village Grill. The menu featured slow-braised pork cheeks with mushrooms & polenta, marinated lamb skewers with bell peppers, buffalo chicken cigars with Point Reyes blue cheese dipping sauce, salmon cake sliders and a nearly five-foot-long artistic presentation of gourmet cheeses and crudité of fresh and roasted vegetables with basil ranch dip, roasted garlic hummus and pita. Desserts included a variety of fruits with honey yogurt & mint sprigs with an array of delicate Baklavas of cinnamon, chocolate, almond and hazelnut.

Generous guests pledged over $3,000 to fulfill specific wishes individual schools submitted including materials for JMMS Adventure Electives, reading instruction software, computer hardware, physical education and playground equipment and more.

With a guest list nearly doubled from previous year’s receptions and over $3,000 raised for local schools, the fourth annual Alpine Education Foundation President’s Reception was a huge success.

Bruce Cochrane, AUSD Superintendent, addressed the crowd speaking of the exciting direction the school district is heading by welcoming the new principal of Alpine Elementary School, Denise Goulart and highlighting principal Jon McEvoy’s move to Joan MacQueen Middle School and his introduction of a new vision at JMMS with needs-based instruction for students, advisory, “adventures” electives and integrated science/social studies for challenged based learning. The superintendent also emphasized the collaboration occurring between administration, teachers and staff in introducing the Common Core, new California state-mandated educational standards.

Darlene Newcomb, AUSD 2nd Grade Teacher in the Shadow Hills Spanish Immersion Program spoke of how the Alpine Education Foundation has assisted the schools within the District enabling educators to explore new methods of implementation, providing salaries for aides to assist teachers in the Creekside Pathways reading program, sponsorship of the Lego Robotics program at Joan MacQueen Middle School and much more.

To express appreciation, AEF President, Colin Campbell presented certificates to donors who have given generously to support the Foundation:
