The volunteers and staff that coordinate and support this event put in countless hours, sneak in tasks after the kids have gone to bed, donate resources from their jobs, take time off of work and attention away from their families in order to make this event possible. There are no words for our gratitude and you are the ONLY reason why this event has been such a HUGE success. We have a special thank you for all volunteers that contributed time to the event. Please stop by the parent room during the last week before break, or we will send it home in your child’s backpack. Thank you so much for making this event such a HUGE SUCCESS!
