A big Highlands thank you to Pam Bobowski for the amazing job she and her committee of Alison Hasenkamp, Jen Gurr, Susie Kim, Kristin Fox and Deidre Murtagh, did with the first ever, Highlands Business Expo!
Pam’s vision of bringing together the parent/neighborhood community to highlight Highlands’ owned businesses and stores that service our community, in a fun and relaxing setting, made for an outstanding evening while generating income for the school’s SMART Fund.
The PTA would also like to thank the following volunteers for your time and service: Jim Bobowski Lincoln Hershberger Eric Olbekson Emi Lam Debra & Blair Carlson Fiona Wong Meghan Lubker
And special thanks to our Middle School volunteers:
Claudia Siguenza Natalie Kantor Annika Fox Sierra Dozier Marlo Spencer Brooke Vaysberg
The 5th Grade Parents want to thank Erica Smulever and Madeline Flanagan for hosting a lovely wine tasting at Erica's home. The fundraiser raised over $900 which will go towards the promotion and associated activities. In addition to such a fun evening, the moms were able to shop at Kris Nations Jewelry as Kim Nations donated 50% of their proceeds to the 5th grade. Thank you awesome ladies!
In case you missed this fabulous evening, donations can still be made by paypal to email@example.com or by check made payable to "Highlands Elementary" noting 5th Grade Promotion in the memo.
