2    Tombol a 2009
                      Bienvenidos a Sevilla!
Thank you so much for coming tonight to A Saturday in Seville, the auction
and celebration produced by the Kentfield Schools Foundation Board, our
tremendous community sponsors and our generous parent donors. This
community responds with generosity every time the Foundation asks for
support. The result: exceptional education in a community school.

A Community-Funded School Differs Dramatically from a True Public School.
Our community-funded schools provide smaller classes than true public
schools, as well as credentialed specialists to teach music, art, PE and other
enrichment courses. In some of our neighboring schools, PE, art and music
are taught by classroom teachers, not credentialed specialists. True public
schools also have larger class sizes than ours, often without any teacher’s
aids. Our District is also able to attract, train and retain the highest quality

Your Contributions Determine Class Size and Enrichment Activities.
Our District is grappling with large budget cuts as a result of declining state
revenues and dwindling property tax revenues. As our enrollment increases
and property taxes decline, we will not be entitled to any additional state
funding. Your contributions to the Foundation tonight and throughout the
year directly determine the District’s ability to maintain small class sizes, and
to retain our enrichment teachers. Continued community funding is also
critical to maintaining our property values, which are directly linked to the
quality of the schools. So please, enjoy yourselves at Tombola and spend

Tombola is a labor of love and the result of tireless hours of work by many
people on the Foundation board and in the community. Please join me
in giving special thanks to Tombola Chair Ginger Wilcox; KSF Executive
Director Laurie Treganowen; and Auction Co-Chairs Erin Becker and Lexa
Herron. I hope we all have a memorable and profitable evening!
