THANK YOU:

Thank you Rema Chazbek, Hospitality Chair '22/'23, for providing the Welcome staff luncheon, the day before school was in session.  Our teachers and staff need to know how much we appreciate them! Also for arranging the coffee at the Welcome Coffees on WING day and the First day of school.
 
Thank you to all parent volunteers that helped with the Textbook distribution in the first week of school. Joni Accomazzo, our textbook coordinator, could not have done it without your help.
 
Thank you to the Booster presidents for great collaboration at the start of the school year at the Welcome coffee. Looking forward to a fabulous year working together.
