Children and their parents flooded to Greendell School in Palo Alto Saturday evening (Sept. 25) to honor Eleanora Jadwin, a longtime teacher and director of Palo Alto's PreSchool Family program.
More than 200 alumni and current families came out to celebrate the now-retired Jadwin, who helped launch Palo Alto's Young Fives program in 1975 and became coordinator of PreSchool Family in 1983.
After a barbecue supper, the attendees watched an outdoor premiere of the film "Growing Together: the PreSchool Family Story."
"Eleanora was the driving force behind this film," said current PreSchool Family Director Sharon Keplinger. "She's been a tireless advocate of our children, our families and our community for decades. It is our deepest honor to honor her."
