A local organization has come up with a new way for Pembroke parents to show their appreciation for the teachers and staff in the public schools. The nonprofit Pembroke Education Foundation is launching the Shining Star Program, which offers families the opportunity to make donations to the organization in the name of individual educators. The educators will be listed as a “Shining Star” in materials distributed districtwide and will be sent a personalized letter from the donor family. The program will be offered twice annually, during the holiday season and at the conclusion of the school year. All donations will go toward the grants the foundation provides to support enrichment programs in the schools. Donations for the current round can be made through Dec. 15. For more information or to donate, go to www.pembrokeeducationfoundation.org. - John Laidler
