Thank you so much to everyone that came out to celebrate PandaFest! It was really great seeing so many College Park families enjoying the games, getting messy with slime, eating yummy food, and generally having a good time.
A special thanks to:
Kim Stafford, Roxanne Jen, and Jocelyn Pang on the planning team for all your wonderful ideas and hard work behind the scenes.
Principal Chuang for opening the campus early to us on Saturday and Sunday, and the janitor Lekeni for keeping things neat and tidy.
PTA President Jon Wu for arriving at 9:30 to help set up and staying until everything was put back away!
Stephanie Chu for the banner and flyer design.
CP alum Abe Yeager for wearing the Panda Suit and keeping everyone entertained.
And Gigi Chiu and Yen Pang for facilitating and donating the ever popular cotton candy and ice cream stands.
We couldn't have had the day without the amazing 4th and 5th grade Game Monitors. Your enthusiasm for the event and for giving back to your school was inspiring. Especially those who signed up for extra shifts so the game stations could stay open!
