Support of community, PTA make Sears staff feel appreciated

Tesoro, Spenard Builders and Sears PTA really cook!

Sears Elementary is a great school because so many folks in our community support the school. We want to thank those folks that made Staff Appreciation Day so special for our entire school staff.

The cooking cart presented to our staff through the joint efforts of Tesoro, Spenard Builders and the Sears Elementary PTA is a tremendous addition to our school. As part of our developmentally appropriate instruction, cooking centers are an integrated part of our curriculum, and we have been in real need of a solution as to how to provide safe, convenient and easily accessible equipment to our classrooms. This cooking cart is ideal. It not only has the latest in equipment, but it also is child-oriented and child-sized. We will be thankful each time we use it.

Our PTA presented each staff member with a large, beautiful potted plant grown by Ridgeway Greenhouse. The Sears Elementary PTA also provided lunch to the entire staff.

Many thanks to Nelson Amen, Tesoro maintenance superintendent; Ken Kivi, Tesoro carpenter; and Jeff Warton, assistant manager at Spenard Builders Supply.

Our sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Sears PTA and the officers, Ann Hall, Amy Bowen, Robin Dix, Johnelle McCauley and Natasha Johnson.

Thanks so much from the Sears Elementary staff. We feel appreciated!

Sterling family celebration enhanced by contributions

The Sterling Head Start Parent Committee would like to express its sincere gratitude for all the donations provided for its first family celebration held on May 15. Everyone had a grand time. The event was enhanced due to the contributions we received from individuals, community organizations and local businesses.

During this celebration, we had the opportunity to share our growth in literacy. This was made possible through the institution of our Wiggle Worm reading project, instituted by our AmeriCorps representative, Jeni Merkes. Family members read 363 books to their Head Start children between April 1 and May 10. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the support of all the parents and family members. Kudos are extended to all our families for making this possible.

We are truly grateful to all the parents who provided food, beverages and special prizes for the children. We also would like to acknowledge all the parent volunteers for their time and effort in making this an exceptional year for all the Head Start children.

Last, we extend a giant "thank you" to the following for their generosity: Sterling Community Club, Cooks Corner, Regal Foods, Della Boyer with Suburban Propane, Fred Meyer, Lawrence and Helen Ware, and Jean Mahan.
