Many families in the western feeder pattern will recognize Carmen Garcia’s name. Her children are enrolled at Henley and Western and she was President of the PTO for Murray Elementary last year. Carmen, her husband, Alfredo, and their family are all in Spain for this semester, while Alfredo is on sabbatical from UVA.

With a strong commitment to supporting Albemarle County Public Schools, Carmen has maintained her engagement with school issues from Madrid, following the schools’ e-newsletters, corresponding with friends, reading Daily Progress stories on line, and sending questions and support emails to our public officials.

She won’t be able to make the March 3rd BOS public hearing, but she has contributed the following petition, which is gaining wide support. If you are interested, please sign this petition requesting the Board of Supervisors to fully fund the School's budget:

She has asked if this could be distributed via Parent Council and provided permission for forwarding via personal emails and school e-newsletters hoping to reach the greatest amount of active citizens and move the issue forward.
