Our after-school program at Coronado K-8 has ended for this year,but the IMPACT Coordinator Donna Ybarra has had on students and families goes on! Thank you, Donna, for an incredible job! Here are just a few of the well-deserved accolades she has received:
From a student:
One middle-schooler created a Poetry Anthology for her writing class, saying, "I would like to dedicate this to Mrs. Donna Ybarra and her daughter, Mary, for always giving me inspiration and a helping hand. They are so kind to me and deserve much more than a simple dedication."
"Thank you for letting my son come to the after school program. It has made a lot of difference for him to be able to catch up with his school work in all grades and pass 6th grade. He does struggle and Mrs. Donna you being there to help him and talk to him about grades and life and why we as parents push our kids to do well and try hard. Thank you for all that you do for our children."
“May I say how blessed I am that you have made it possible for my son last year and this year to be in the after school class with Mrs. Donna Ybarra. He graduated thanks so much to Mrs. Donna's help. Her love, kindness, and devotion will be in our mind and hearts forever.”
