At our Back to School Night, the ALPS program was delighted to honor Belinda Larson for her dedication and commitment to NVUSD Advanced Learner Programs at Vichy Elementary School. For the past six years, Belinda has been supporting students to use our on line learning tool the "ALPS Project Zone" at Vichy School. In addition she is the Webmaster for the NVUSD ALPS Project Zone - used by students throughout all Napa Valley schools.

Thank you Belinda!
