Dear Editor:

The 90th Annual American Education Week is being celebrated this week. The week is designed to spotlight the importance of public education. We are fortunate to have quality public schools in Lunenburg County. These public schools have excellent and dedicated teachers, support staff and administrators who are making a difference in the lives of our students.

Great communities are built around great public schools. The Lunenburg County Public School System is proud of the strong partnership between parents, community, businesses and the school system. This partnership is essential to guaranteeing the best possible future for our students and our community. Together, we are committed to provide all children with quality education and extra-curriculum and afterschool activities.

I extend my sincere appreciation to students, parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, and especially to the community for your continued support of the Lunenburg County Public Schools. Whether our goals are to foster creative, critical thinking, mastering the art of one of the four basic core subjects or fine arts or career/technology courses, educators have the ability to make our communities brighter. I invite our community to say “thank you” to all who are involved in making Lunenburg County a great place to live and work.

Charles M. Berkley,
