Giving Thanks for Mount Diablo

Giving Thanks for Mount Diablo

Superintendent Burns and JM teacher Dawn Lezak  experienced outdoor learning as part of the Save Mount Diablo's Conservation Collaboration Agreement program. Moraga School District's JM students have the opportunity to participate in this program. 

In honor of Thanksgiving 2017, Save Mount Diablo (“SMD”), Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School (“JMIS”), and Bedell Frazier Investment Counselling, LLC (“BFIC”) signed a Conservation Collaboration Agreement on November 6, 2017 to give thanks for the Mount Diablo area, our beautiful natural bounty.

 

“The parties to this Agreement are demonstrating that we do not take for granted our beautiful Mount Diablo.  To expedite our time-sensitive land conservation work for the Mount Diablo area, Save Mount Diablo is reaching out to students and other leaders to join the cause. We all have a major stake in what our future environment will be like, especially young people. We are grateful for the leadership, long-term vision and philanthropy demonstrated by Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School and Bedell Frazier Investment Counselling, LLC for entering this Conservation Collaboration Agreement with Save Mount Diablo this Thanksgiving season,” said Ted Clement, Save Mount Diablo’s Executive Director.

 

Moraga School District Superintendent Bruce Burns is pleased that JMIS is stepping up to give thanks for Mount Diablo because, “It is imperative that children have the opportunities to experience, play and enjoy the outdoors as they will more likely appreciate and safeguard nature when they become young adults.”

 

"Today more than ever, students learn about global environmental issues which are daunting and can leave them feeling small and powerless. It is vital that we bring students' learning to the outdoors in a way that allows them to take action and be a part of local solutions and Save Mount Diablo’s Conservation Collaboration Agreement program gives the students that opportunity," said JMIS teacher Dawn Lezak.

MSD Sells First Bonds From Voter-Approved Measure V

In March, the Moraga School District sold $12 million in general obligation bonds from Measure V, the 2016 ballot measure that authorized the sale of $33 million in general obligation bonds. District voters overwhelmingly approved Measure V with support from more than 72% of voters. Proceeds of the Measure V bonds will be used to repair leaky roofs, improve student access to technology, modernize, renovate and construct school facilities, upgrade electrical systems, and make health, seismic, safety and security improvements. In conjunction with the passage of Measure V, a Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee was established.

The District sold its 2017 Bonds during a period in which interest rates were near all-time lows. Rates on the 2017 Bonds ranged between 0.88% and 3.88% for an average borrowing cost of 3.63%. Superintendent Bruce Burns stated, “We are excited to begin the projects approved by District voters in November. Improving existing facilities and building new ones will allow us to maintain the high standards of education Moraga is accustomed to.” Daniela Parasidis, Chief Business Official added, “Our low borrowing cost will allow us to keep tax rates low while maintaining flexibility to sell additional bonds in the future to continue the Measure V projects.” The sale of the 2017 Bonds was unanimously approved by the District Board of Trustees in February 2017.
