thank our staff


We were absolutely overwhelmed, and our hearts (and stomachs!) were so full, from the Staff Appreciation Luncheon on Friday. The vast amount of delicious food and treats, and the beautiful touches – from flowers to handmade cards and gift cards, to sweet hosting – just blew us away, and truly made us feel appreciated. The thoughtfulness of carry-out containers likely fed many staff members and their families dinner, as well. Our deep thanks to the many families who participated in this effort, and especially to Sarah McNeil and Sierra Roussos, who led the way. 

We also want to thank Rowland Ricketts and Gary Grumbling for serving as chaperones for our Graduate Celebration Day on Friday. Our grads had a marvelous time bowling and playing games at the IMU, while enjoying a fabulous catered lunch. This wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of graduate families, and without the time and joy that Rowland and Gary shared with our kiddos and staff. Both the Appreciation Luncheon and the Graduate Celebration Day were such wonderful punctuations as we now head toward the finish line of this year together.

We are also so grateful for all of the support, encouragement and partnership our families have shared with us during this year. For our graduating families, we will miss you deeply. For our returning families, we cannot wait to see you in August. And for ALL of our families, we wish you a beautiful, peaceful and SAFE summer! 

We are so grateful for the love and kindness of our families!
