Thank you to all who participated in the Norwex online party. We appreciate the parents who purchased for the school. We were able to earn new products for the school, including a new mop! We will have another party sometime in the summer or next fall!
Our PJ hostesses also deserve a thank you for their continued commitment. Mina, Lilly, Tina, Bianca, Angela, Frances, Sabrina, Paola, Kate, and Ariana are those team members who supply all delicious treats for our meals on PJ nights.
Under the leadership of our Events Chair, Jenna, the All School Meeting Coordinator Christina and her team, Lex, Yvonne, Anna, Serena, Emily and Selena, pulled off a very successful and fun event. Thank YOU all. We also appreciated all the parents who participated in our Parent-to-Parent Networking.
Our Development Team, led by Nesa Bergman and Kristen Follis, also deserve some appreciation for the fun and successful balloon raffle. Team members Melissa, Liana and Dino were a huge help with this. We appreciate your efforts.
Appreciation is also due to the Thursday AM class and all others who participated in this recent school wash. The classroom sparkled and we are grateful it is clean and safe for our little ones.
