Hello, Everyone:

2020 is starting out to be a year we’ll never forget!

With every one of us facing this challenging new reality with great caution and uncertainty about the future, it seems a good time to take out a few moments to reflect on some things that continue to give us hope for a bright future - and maybe even put a smile on your face.


Our Exceeding Expectations kids have had a busy few months. Here are some shots from our annual Swimathon/Runathon.

Nik and his Ashley got married


Marlene started graduate school


Our three upcoming college graduates are progressing nicely. Josh and Isi are currently interviewing for graduate programs and John will complete his degree in Construction Management in December and get right to work.



We have three kids graduating from high school in June and each is going on to college. Jeffrey is heading for Chaffey College, Ricardo will be going to Valley College, and Vanessa has been accepted to several schools and is still making the final decision.



Like all of you, we too are now facing event cancellations, closed schools and many unknowns. Our plan is to keep everyone safe and healthy while maintaining our focus on the overall goal: assuring that the EE kids continue to have opportunities to exceed expectations.


Stay healthy!
