Reflections on the 2013-2014 school year, by your exiting PTO Board:
We started our year with the holiday Sukkot
And when asked for a Sukkah we did not even have to vote
We brought volunteers and lumber we did buy
And it was built beautifully on the very first try!
The Shabbat dinner as always was nice and relaxing
Although dinner for 300 is extremely taxing!
We looked at the stars and together we did pray
All in all it was a very peaceful day
We shopped til we dropped
Our credit cards never stopped
Which helped raise money for our school
Which was really oh so cool
Thanksgivikuh this year brought turkey and pie
And many donations our parents did buy
To ensure that those who needed it got enough to eat
Their appreciation was enough to knock us off our feet
At the Chanukah party everyone was in a great mood
And of course we provided some delicious food
And asked everyone to bring a book or a toy
To give away to another girl or boy
The kids wanted to spin dreidels and they could not wait
To watch the magician make Dr. Gereboff levitate!
At Purim we did our Mishloach Manot
And donated to others that we did not know
We then did another donation day
To help various organizations in just about every way
The donations filled up many a ride
When we dropped it all off, we were filled with pride
In April our teachers we did appreciate
And as usual, we really could not wait
To show them the things we had in store
At the lunch — tropical drinks we did pour!
We showed them we appreciate the way that they teach
By making them feel like they were sitting at the beach
At Wornickfest DJ Max brought the groove and brought the funk
Even principals Nicole and Dan the kids did dunk
Joel, Adam and Alex were good sports as well
The kids really loved it when into the water they fell!
The raffle prizes this year were crazy!
Trying to remember them is hard–it is all a bit hazy
But the excitement was really so incredibly great
Although calling the raffle ran really late
People walked away with many a prize
And a look of wonder in their eyes
We are ending this year with a big thank you
We appreciate all of you, we really do!
Our parents and teachers help make our events run
So that everyone can have a whole lot of fun
Most of the Board is retiring this year
Which we expect to bring more than one tear
But the new Board taking over is ready to rock
They eagerly await their turn, they are watching the clock!
So get ready for them to take over next year
And above all else, please please VOLUNTEER!!!
We wish all of you a wonderful, relaxing summer—see you in August!
Michele, Laurie, Rebecca, Rechelle, Lily, Elizabeth and Dominique
