A few quick shout-outs to thank the Miner community for contributing to what was a pretty busy final week before the start of Winter Break:
First, I’d like to thank the PTO’s vice president, Julie Muir, for leading the effort to purchase and wrap 25 toys and other gifts which were provided to Miner’s social workers to distribute to students who might not otherwise receive many gifts this Christmas. The PTO’s ability to do this was aided greatly by a generous donation from the H St. Community Development Corporation (http://www.hstreetcdc.org/). Thank you HSCDC for your support of Miner!
Second, I’d like to echo the appreciation expressed by Jessica and Justin Burniske regarding the PTO’s holiday cookie drive. It was amazing to see so many incredible treats donated by parents so the staff could take home something sweet for the break.
Lastly, I’d like to pass on a message from Ms. Mears and the Kindergarten team: “Thank you to all the families and staff for supporting the holiday shop! We sold out and raised $415. It was a wonderful experience for students to give to others. I am truly excited for all our kindergarteners!”
Thank you again for being a part of our incredible Miner community! Have a restful Winter Break and we’ll see you in 2018!
