Volunteers make all difference in Soldotna school's success

Business owners and volunteers are awesome in our area for supporting their community. Soldotna Elementary PTA received so many "yes" responses this year to requests for help in sponsoring and volunteering for our activities. We would like to thank the following for their support: Beemun's Variety, Godfather's Pizza, The Moose Is Loose Cafe, Hair Force, the Bingo Hall at the "Y," Alaska Great Skate, Coke, Orca Theaters, River City Books, Fred Meyer, Safeway, K-Beach Elementary PTA for the use of the bingo cards, Redoubt Elementary for the combined Bike Rodeo, and Dr. McCord and Jane Fellman for the Bike Rodeo.

The Soldotna Elementary PTA would also like to thank all the Soldotna Elementary staff and After The Bell for their support and willingness to assist in the after-school functions. Also, many thanks to all the parent volunteers that come in and support the teachers during the day, along with helping with the other activities the school was able to have. Our school's success largely depends on these outstanding people.

Thank you!

Lauri Lingafelt, Soldotna Elementary PTA
