Rocky Mountain Tamales and Talk

I attended a Tamales and Talk hosted jointly by Rocky Mountain Elementary School and the Longmont Multicultural Task Force earlier this month.  It was a memorable event.

The purpose was to bring together school parents, teachers and community members (in particular members of the Longmont Rotary) to get to know each other better and discuss ways to support the school’s students.

I’ve been to a lot of meetings in schools.  Never was one so full and so positive.  I could not see all the tables in the crowded library from my vantage point.  I stopped trying to count people at 80.

I will remember the passion and commitment of the parents and educators in that room for a long time.  It is one of those occasions that makes you proud of the people who call Longmont home.
