On the evening of April 26th during the San Juan Unified School District Board meeting, fifth graders Esther Sullivan and Wyatt Kerr stood up to communicate the importance of our May Day Festival and to personally invite members of the board. Third graders Seneca Ikemire and Grace Kerr and first grader Kusha Hosseinion stood up as well.

Each of these students presented handmade invitations for each board member.  Golden Valley Orchard School teachers Ms. Sullivan, Ms. Cortez, and Ms. Hidden coordinated the making of the student invitations.
