Kudos & Kindness

The Sierra House PTA wishes to extend a sincere thank-you to two organizations that added greatly to the school grounds this summer.

First, the school district’s maintenance department, headed by Steve Morales, coordinated multiple tasks relating to BMPs.

They include updating the school’s drainage system, repaving, painting and resodding school grounds and putting up our swings.

In addition, with the help of the nonprofit environmental group SWEP, led by Gretchen Hule and Christine McMorrow, the school received donations to help plant native plants in front of the school.

Sierra House students, staff and families supplied the labor for our “pond planting” led by our own Kathy Campion.

A school is a place for learning, gathering, playing and achieving. The staff, families and facilities set the tone for these goals.

Thank you again to those who truly contributed to Sierra House Elementary School’s future.

Thanks for help on car wash

A big thank-you from the 2007 Dance Visions Dance Team to Peter Guilfoil of OptiComp, Gary Michaelson of Kingsbury Exxon and Kelly and John Alvarez.

These generous individuals helped our team kick-off our season by donating their businesses for us to hold car wash fundraisers.

Competitive Dance Team is a fun and challenging, but expensive sport. We are grateful to not only these business owners, but also to all of you who let us wash your cars.
