    Mentoring New Families in 2017-2018

    Remember when you were new to Gonzaga?  The simplest things can feel overwhelming!  Please consider guiding a few new moms through the process by offering to answer questions and provide information.  Often these questions are as simple as "What kind of shoes do the boys wear?"  All it takes to provide that support is one phone call during the summer, and another during the fall, to reach out and connect with a new mom.  You can answer any immediate questions, share some of our Gonzaga friendliness, and leave your contact information for future questions. It's so easy, yet makes such a big difference.

    Dear Gonzaga Moms,

    It is hard to believe that we are almost at the end of the school year.  Thank you to everyone for all of your assistance and support with activities throughout the year.  We still have several year-end events – our Chairs will be sure to make it easy and fun to volunteer at these!  Please contact the Chairs of these upcoming events using the information below, if you would like to help at: the Faculty Summer Sendoff Luncheon (May 31), the Baccalaureate Reception (June 3), and the New Mothers’ Luncheon (June 7).  Thank you in advance for helping us to make these events so special!
      
    We hope you will join us this Wednesday evening, May 17, for the GMC-GFC Joint Meeting starting at 6:30 p.m. in the Arrupe (Upper) Commons.  We will enjoy fellowship with moms and dads in the Gonzaga community and enjoy a light dinner, provided by the GFC, before moving into the Sheehy Theater.  Fr. Planning will provide his traditional remarks on Eye Street happenings, then we will conclude a bit of business, including the final vote for the 2017-2018 GMC Executive Board. Please come and support our slate. The evening will continue with our guest speaker, Paul Buckley, sharing his unique perspective of Gonzaga as an alum, teacher and producer of GDA.
       
    Thanks to McKenna Center/Service ChairsErin Donovan, Morgean Hirt, Valerie Jopeck, and Anne Ourand for organizing the bake sale, which raised $800 for the McKenna Center. Followed by a very successful Mother’s Day Flowers, headed by Valerie Jopeck, for our neighbors at Unique Residential Care Center on May 11. Twenty-eight Seniors from Ms. Corgan and Mr. Hartnett's Religion classes delivered 110 bouquets to individual residents and had the opportunity to converse with many of the ladies in residence. Thank you to everyone who sent in treats and flowers and volunteered at these events.
     
    If you have wanted to come to a Faculty Treats, you’ll have to wait until Fall. The final Faculty Treats of this school year was last Friday and we treated the teachers to the first ever waffle bar. They loved it! Many thanks to Maria Cindea and Kristen Kilguss for all the early mornings they have crawled out of bed to be on campus before the sun.

    Jean Schlesinger, Maya Shackley and I went to the Washington School for Girls on May 2 to deliver the collection from the Mother-Son mass. Everyone was most appreciative of the generosity of our community. After meeting with Sister Mary Bourdon we were honored by a tour of the school. There is so much energy and excitement inside that building that you can’t help but smile as you watch the girls at work. If you have a chance to visit take the trip, it is well worth it.

    We had some great submissions for the Spirit of Gonzaga Photo Contest. The winners were announced at Charter Day and you can see the slide show of submissions on the website. Check them out; what talented boys!
     
    There will be lots of activity on Eye Street this month! We look forward to seeing you at the joint meeting Wednesday night and on Eye Street before the year ends!
