I appreciate all the volunteers I have had this year! Several of our parents have also been integral to helping me complete many of the tasks mentioned in the paragraph above (special thanks to Illona, Brandy, Chris, Cori, and Jodi, who have volunteered regularly, and any of you who have put in hours here). Mr. Leon and Mr. Keith from Forest Heights Baptist Church are making great headway on the inventory and helping shelve the onslaught of books students and teachers are returning as we wrap up this year. Your work is invaluable to be, but more than that, your time enriches the programming I am able to offer for our kids.
Speaking of gratitude, special thanks goes to our PTA Board- Linda Renzulli, Cori Pringle, and Seth Hendershot- who provided funding for last Friday's K-1 Poetry Off the Page Performance (as well as for the countless hours they spend supporting our school). Their donation paid for a return visit from our favorite performers, Marty Barrett and Pat Bell, who again made poetry come alive for our kids in the younger grades. We cannot thank you enough, PTA. You rock our world!
