October 27, 2011

I hope that you had the opportunity to come to the Harvest Fun Festival Monday night. We had a great crowd on campus and lots of fun, food, and fellowship. Of course we are excited that everyone had such a good time, but more importantly, the Parents’ Club again raised needed money to fund those projects and programs that make our school special.

I want to offer my gratitude to Amy Gordon (this year’s Parents’ Club President) and the entire cadre of Parents’ Club volunteers who set up and worked the various games, served and prepared the food, and coordinated the different events like Bingo and Chrysler’s “Drive for the Kids,” to help make it a such a rousing success. I absolutely love watching all the children (young and old) scurrying about having a great time. I was also very impressed with the students from the National Honor Society, who helped serve the Bar-B-Que and the Interact Club who ran the games out front, as part of their service projects for this year. These young student leaders are learning firsthand that to be an effective leader you must first have a servant’s heart.

So to all those who helped, and all those who attended, a big “Thank You” from all of us at MHS!
