Dear Family and Friends of Head Start, I write this letter with thanks and appreciation for your support in celebrating the first 50 years of Head Start and Tri-Valley Opportunity Council, Inc. From festivity and reflection to commemoration and recognition, we have celebrated this anniversary in big and small ways. Through our work, we continue to honor the positive impact of 50 years of program success and achievement in the lives of thousands of children and their families. Many thanks to our Head Start community, our children and families, teachers, staff members, volunteers, and board and policy council members for making this anniversary year one to remember. In addition to celebrating our milestone anniversary, this year has also been exciting due to the growing local and national conversation about the value and need for early childhood development programs for all children. Head Start data shows that the earlier we start with education, the stronger the impact will be on a childâ€™s long term educational success. Head Start is a leading voice on this issue and continues to expand our community leadership through support of quality Head Start services, as well as collaborating with local early childhood programs. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Board of Directors; the Policy Council, our staff and many community partners and school districts for their expertise, guidance and continuous support. It takes all of us working together to provide high quality early learning services to children, equipping them with the foundation for lifelong learning and success.
