Thank You, Loring

6/5/2024 12:27 pm

Over the course of the year, we try our best to recognize the many volunteers that contribute to the PTO in the Thursday Notices. But, in addition to the board, there are other roles that go on all year long and we would be unable to support many of our initiatives without these dedicated Loring family members. As the school year comes to a close, I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge the many volunteers who support the PTO "behind the scenes".

First, a huge thank you to Crystal Pike for all of her “advisory” work this past year.  Even though her time on the board ended last June, we kept pulling her back in to help with various tasks.  Thank you so much for continuing to support the PTO - you’ve put in your fair share of time (and then some).  Thank you to Xi Su for all of her work on the Membership Toolkit sales and forms as well as the website.  And apologies for some of our last minute requests!

Thank you to Laura Warren for taking on four roles this year!  Not only did Laura chair the 5th Grade Committees, she also took on the roles of school beautification (the pawsome planter and flowers that greet us as we walk into the school), room parent coordinator, and senior day coordinator (the day where the Loring alums graduating from LS return to visit).

Heather Larson once again coordinated Food Pantry collections and probably shuffled more boxes than my Amazon delivery driver.

Have you ever wondering where those Red Folders come from?  Well, we can all thank Nadia Salman for volunteering each summer to source and label hundreds and hundreds of folders.

Thank you to Katie Riordan and Amy Kohen for coordinating the Birthday Book Club and for fielding many of my continuing questions and frantic texts.

Our previous apparel coordinator, Rebecca Firth, passed the baton to Sarah Astman.  Thank you both for keeping us in our Loring best!

Stephanie Coury stepped up in her first year at Loring to coordinate our Staff Spotlight, which celebrated each and every Loring staff member throughout the year!

Thank you to Colleen Gleason-Epple, our Business Sponsor whisperer, for recruiting our fabulous slate of Business Sponsors.  Our sponsors are responsible for almost 25% of our annual budget!

Kerri Brien was back as our lunch and recess volunteer coordinator and waded into planning the auction/PNO for the first time.

Thank you all for keeping this PTO moving forward each year! 

More to come next week in my 38th and final Thursday Notice (not that I’m counting)!
