A note of thanks from Parents Auxiliary

Rebecca McCracken
Several PA committees have already been busy this year, so please join me in applauding some wonderful people:

Robin Bakkegard (Merchandise)- Thank you for working over the summer to design and order the new Highlands field trip t-shirts. Robin has pioneered well, so let’s all thank her as she continues to distribute shirts among the grade levels.

Nancy Barr (Room Parents)- Thank you for recruiting and organizing room parents for the year and, in turn, thank you to our great room parents.

Elizabeth Crawford (Faculty Appreciation)- Thank you for providing a delicious lunch and remarkable spread for the entire faculty and staff, on the week before school even began.

Emily Lawrence and Claire Medo (Hospitality) – Thank you for the beautiful refreshment tables provided for both Parents Night events and for the warm welcome at Open House.

PA Officers Susan Evans, Amy Neiman, Margi Patel, Anne Marie Seibel, and Doug Turner – Thank you for your time and expertise given already, and throughout the year.

And to all of you – Thank you for celebrating Highlands by volunteering and giving so generously. You truly are an amazing group!

All the best, 
Rebecca McCracken
