A Huge Volunteer Thank You!

As we head into the end of year rush, the HSA would like to thank and acknowledge all of the parent volunteers. Last week, thanks to an unfortunate shipping delay, we had to put out a last minute bat signal for Teacher Appreciation help!  Within minutes we had a team ready. Thanks to Jess Adasi, Tressa Sanders, Subrat Biswal, Fatima Clark, Molly Scott, Julie Visperas, Jamie Novikoff and Brooke Finland for jumping in and countless others who offered to help.

Throughout the year, we ask for significant parent involvement from an already busy community.  The amount of parents and caregivers who consistently chip in is inspiring and is certainly one of the things that make Lafayette such a special community.

And, countless individuals filled up those dreaded sign-ups – if you took a spot managing a bouncy house at the fall festival, opened car doors on the drop off line, or sold pizza at arts night; if you read a story to a class, helped out in the arts room or the library; if you bought diapers or ripped box tops, got wet on Field Day or sticky at the popsicle social; if you set up tables for International Night, manned the DC Theater Cafe or went to war with the Battle of the Books; if you mined your garden for flowers for teachers- thank you!
