To The Editor:

I wanted to praise the principal, teachers and students at Pacific High School.

I am the director at Rainbow Activity Center, a day program for adults with developmental disabilities. Mr. Dempsey, the art teacher, started a program with one of his art classes to give our individuals the opportunity to experience different art medias. This has been a great experience for all of our individuals as well as the staff. Not only has it been a great learning experience, but also it has given them a chance to build on friendships that have developed by visiting the school.

The creativity and compassion of each of the students in the class has made each visit a memorable event in the lives of each person that has gone. With the support and guidance by the great faculty at Pacific High, I am positive these students will become great teachers.

We again thank them for letting us be a part of this and hope to have a long and lasting friendship with everyone at the school.
