The PTO’s second annual Holiday Greenery & Bake sale was an incredible success! By selling nearly 200 trees and dozens of wreaths and garlands, we raised $4,000 to be used in the PTO’s efforts to directly support Miner’s students and teachers. The response from the community was overwhelming, and it was great to see so many neighbors and friends of Miner attend the sale. And of course we are pleased that so many Miner families were able to purchase their perfect Christmas tree, holiday greenery, and tasty treats from us!
At the conclusion of the sale, the PTO donated a tree to the school, which has already been set up on the stage and festively decorated by students and staff (see photo at right).
Lindsey Jones-Renaud and Mariana Jones, the co-chairs of the PTO’s Fundraising & Grants Committee, did an amazing job leading and coordinating this major undertaking. It is because of their tireless dedication to Miner that the sale was such a success. Thank you Lindsey and Mariana!
The PTO would also like to extend its appreciation to all the Miner parents and staff who volunteered their time working during the sale and donating goodies for the bake sale! Parents who braved the cold to assist customers, haul trees, trim trunks and branches, and bundle and load into and onto cars include Hayden Aaronson, Heidi Altman & Scott Roehm, Lolly Axley & Marc Borbely, Andrew Curry, Shauna Eisenberg, Amber Harlow, Nick Heitger, John Muir, Terri Rupar, Matt & Sara Saxton, and Tiffany Stewart. Special thanks go out to Miner teachers and staff who were right in there with the parents: Principal Jackson, Ms. Cummings, Mr. Dante Daniel, Ms. Dorsey, Ms. G. Harris, and Ms. Kathryn Hunt Wisnoski.
Thanks again everyone! The Miner community truly is amazing! Go Mighty Bears!
