Students at Crocker-Riverside Elementary School are enjoying sunlight in class thanks to voters who passed Measure Q in November 2012.

The bond measure funded the installation of Solatubes, which allows natural sunshine to light room interiors and includes dimmers when a darkened room is required. Students were so thrilled with the Solatubes that they wrote and illustrated thank you letters expressing their gratitude.

“When the clouds move our room gets very bright and everyone says ‘Wow! That’s cool!’ ” wrote one student. Another wrote: “It is a lot easier to see. I can see 100 times better than with light bulbs.”
