The Celebration of Education and Community
For fifteen years, the Lewis Group of Companies has celebrated the city’s commitment to building an educated work force at the Teacher Appreciation Event. Annually, teachers and principals of the Rancho Cucamonga School District and members of the Rancho Cucamonga City Council come together to applaud educators’ positive impact on students in grades k-12 and to encourage the growth of academic programs throughout the district.
How is Lewis Group of Companies Involved?
The Lewis Group of Companies hosted the 2016 Teacher Appreciation Event on Thursday, May 19 at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Rancho Cucamonga.
“We are thrilled with the Lewis Group of Companies and their commitment to education in this community, and in particular, in the Terra Vista Planned Community. Their vision many years ago was to create a wonderful environment for the young, the elderly, and the parents of the school children.”
-L. Dennis Michael, Mayor of Rancho Cucamonga
Randall Lewis, the Executive Vice President of the Lewis Group of Companies, voiced his appreciation to the teachers and principals for their excellent work in improving the lives of students. The Lewis Group of Companies has long been committed to education with a vision to build a better future by partnering with local cities and school districts.
The City’s Commitment
“The attitude and the camaraderie between the schools and the city has been phenomenal.”
-Bill Alexander, City Councilman of Rancho Cucamonga
Programs in the school district have flourished as a result of Rancho Cucamonga’s commitment to education. The Rancho Cucamonga City Council has yearly meetings to discuss the needs of schools and has created new programs. Visible Learning is a program that establishes learning targets and teaches students how to be better learners. This program is set to begin next year at Coyote Canyon Elementary School. Additionally, new music and PE programs have been introduced to Rancho Cucamonga schools.
Cary Wilborn, the principal of Rancho Cucamonga High School, aims to continue to raise graduation rates, as he enthusiastically announced that 540 out of 920 graduates have already chosen a college, a new record for their high school. Wilborn thanked the community and the Lewis Group of Companies, for helping to strengthen Rancho Cucamonga High School.
The Lewis Group of Companies and the Alliance for Education confront challenges in education and workforce development to create a better economy and community in San Bernardino and Riverside County.
