Wednesday Folder – April 30, 2014

Happy Wednesday All!

This morning the teachers and school hosted a lovely brunch for all the amazing parents who have volunteered their time, treasure and talent through the year. There were preformances from the 2nd and 4th graders and a table bursting with home made baked goods, breakfast tacos and coffee. For all the parents who were unable to come this morning, I forward along THES’s appreciation of you for all you do!

Thank you Volunteers! We would be lost without you!

And thank you to all the Teachers and Staff for a wonderful brunch!

In Honor of Poem In Your Pocket Day I am including a little poem here for you all.

The Volunteer

The Volunteer is one with a heart so sincere
No task too large, no task too small,
Who will help with anything at all.
Who will be there in the morning light,
Or help in the dark of night.
The Volunteer, our extra hand,
On whose future our Children Stand.
Never anyone so dear as a Thunderbird Volunteer!
