Inspired to Give 
Danny, Marie and Elan at the Santa Monica 5000 on October 6
Danny Lahave and Marie Noonan are the parents of Elan, a 3rd grade student at John Muir Elementary, and have committed to giving $5,000 for the next 4 years to the Vision for Student Success through the Education Foundation. Why? Marie says, "I have been a volunteer at Muir since Elan was in Kindergarten and it has been a pleasure to watch all the students grow, both academically and socially.  The teachers have made such an impact.  John Muir is such a great community, but we also feel fortunate to be part of the larger SMMUSD community.  We meet amazing people from every SMMUSD school at various events, from AYSO, to the Save Our Schools campaign in 2010.  I look forward to working with all of the schools to make our community even better!" Thank you, Marie and Danny!
