Tired of hearing just the bad news about kids these days? Here's your chance to make a difference.
Along with the opening of the new school year comes the return of Top of the Class on Aug. 18. The weekly education page, now in its 18th year, publishes Wednesdays in the Pasco Times and highlights positive news in public and private schools, along with upcoming school events and some specific needs.
As usual, we'll need help to get that news out to our readers. Do you know a teacher, student or volunteer who has gone above and beyond and deserves some recognition? Got an upcoming open house? Want more folks to see the school jazz band perform? Need new officers for the PTA/PTO or canned goods for that food drive? Then let us know.
It can be as easy as sending us your school newsletter, an e-mail or just picking up the phone.
