THANKS TO VOLUNTEERS
Throughout the year, there are times when some assistance isneeded in the library to carry out events and services. It is during those times that parentvolunteers are invaluable. I would liketo take the time to thank those parents that have been willing to provide mewith that most precious of commodities – their time.
From Book Fairs, to AR Reward activities, to the weekly ARStore, none of the extras that I do with students would be possible withoutvolunteers. Thanks to the followingparents who have helped out this year: Kris Plant, Brenda Anderson, JulieChrisope, Kathy Bates, Liz Eaton, Barbara McClain, Glenda Yepes, Debi Mikesh,Russell Knight, Heather Beaver, Toni Lince, Peggy DeGregory, Carolyn Ladd, andCurtis Mack. Thanks, also, to the Walterfamily and the good folks at Tumwater Domino’s Pizza for providingincentives for our Accelerated Reading program each quarter this year!
I also want to thank the Partners In Education board, forsupporting the work of the library with the many hours that they put in.
If there are others that I neglected to thank, Iapologize. Without the time and talentsof the many willing parents mentioned above, not to mention all of the othersthat help in other capacities around Bush Middle School, it would be verydifficult for us to provide the services that we do. Thank you for making the investment in yourchild’s school. We appreciate you all!
