A quick update and some information as we all break for the two week holiday.
The PTO meeting slated for December 14th is cancelled. We know a lot of people are busy winding up before the break, and we have just one agenda item which can roll over into January.
I want to thank everyone who has supported our various PTO programs either by volunteering or participating. We had over 90% participation in the Walkathon, and despite 50 fewer children enrolled at school this year, we managed to raise more money than we did last year. Once the final accounts are in, we'll share the details. The entire Walkathon team, led by Kristina Gibbs, Jennifer Harris, Loreena Lee, and Libby Shen, deserves our gratitude for putting on a fabulous event, and getting our fundraising for the year off to an excellent start.
We have some great events coming up in the new year, including our Family Science Night (most likely in early February) and a newly introduced Cultural Night coming up in March. Thanks to those who have volunteered to lead these events - we are always looking for more support, so please do take a look at https://www.konstella.com/app/school/52ed386b03642fe28f2b79f5/committees and see if there's something that you might want to help organize. We hope to see plenty of you at these events.
Thanks also to everyone who filled out the survey on after-school enrichment programs. Our program leads, Linda, Vivitha, and Supriya, are now working to introduce programs that match the interests you indicated. This is not a simple process - providers have to be vetted thoroughly - but we hope to have one or two new programs in 2017.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
