Volunteer of the Month: Erika Laing

Image from iOS

Erika has been an outstanding volunteer with the Meadowlark PTSA. Most significantly, she was key in bringing in many AWESOME sponsors for the Meadowlark Mingle last spring, including finding businesses to donate the many, many items that were auctioned during the silent auction during the Mingle. Even this fall, Erika is still steadfastly following through to ensure the sponsors are appropriately recognized and thanked for all that they have done for our school. For this, we send a sincere THANK YOU to Erika!

Thank You!!

  • Thank you to Christopher Najera and Empire Foods for the generous pantry foods donation to the culinary makerspace!!
  • Thank you to all the families who donated food and drinks for the staff conferences. The staff loved the meals and are very grateful to our school community.
  • Huge thanks to Meadowlark parent, Jeanette Porter, for organizing all the conference dinners!!
  • Thank you to all those who came out for Walk and Roll to School Day!! Special thank you to Shannon Kaple for organizing and running the event and Angie Dornier for photographing. More than 100 pairs of shoes were collected – they went to Ecocycle who is partnering with countries around the world to provide shoes for those in need.
