Hello Sandburg Families,
It's been a great year for the Sandburg PTO and we're so grateful for all the support from the community, Principal Karen Tarbell and Dean Julie Matthews and all the teachers and staff. To our amazing PTO Board members --Danielle Steinhart, Trista Caldwell, Shelly Behan, Missy Crew, Dawnyelle Torres, Laura Pederson and Griffin Ladd -- THANK YOU!! You all were such an important part of our success, each in your own way, and most importantly you made it all fun and rewarding. To our many committee chairpersons and super volunteers - who are often the ones doing the most hands-on work behind the scenes - a huge thank you! Shanna Bevirt, Nerressa Philpott, Kristin Smith, Janna Sieber, Andrea Goldstein, Annie Orley, Amy Edstrom, Stephanie Vann, Jenn Stallilonis, Jeni Finnigan, Sandy Lascola, Brian Caldwell, Stacey Clune and Anna Childs.
We're so proud of what we (with your help) accomplished for Sandburg this year - another successful fall fundraiser - Dash4Dollars, an amazing Live and Silent Auction Event - Soaring to New Heights, a super fun Fall Picnic, Movie Night, the many classroom holiday parties, teacher/staff and volunteer appreciation weeks, the Book Fair, teacher and staff luncheons throughout the year and the countless volunteer hours that supported it all. Collectively we raised over $90,000 for Sandburg which will support staffing needs and phase one of the library renovation.
Thank you all for your support. Wishing everyone a great last week of school and a wonderful summer ahead!
~Megan Tornello & Tara Zucker, co-Presidents, Sandburg PTO
