To the editor:

The beginning of each new school year brings excitement to our Island Community. There is a saying: It takes a village to raise a child -- we all know that it takes an Island.

The children and staff of Pine Island Elementary are truly blessed by the support we receive. I wanted to take time to thank a few and will continue over the course of the school year to say thank you.

Thank you to:

* The Matlacha/Pine Island Fire Department gave every student a light to keep them visible in the morning. They assist with drills and events.

* The Matlacha Hookers organize a School Supply Drive. They give endless support of funds and extras through the Fishing Derby.

* The American Legion and Auxiliary for supplies and incentives.

* The Bobby Holloway Memorial fund for supplies and financial support.

* El Pollo Rico for school supplies, headphones and feeding our staff.

* Kiwanis for atlases, financial support and activities.

* Woody's Waterside for staff meals and donations.

* Centennial Bank for calendars, supplies and meals.

Over the course of the year I hope to recognize many more for the love and support shown to our school. School is back in session. Please be extra mindful of children at bus stops and drive safely.

Sincere thanks,

Steven C. Hook
