It seems like only last week we were welcoming you all to a new school year and now here we are writing the last President’s letter of 2016-17.
First, we’d like to say congratulations to the Class of 2017! What an exciting time of life it is to be a student saying goodbye to their primary years of school and entering their future. Best of luck to all of you as you pursue your passions.
We would like to thank our talented and hard working PTSO board! Our board has volunteered many hours to serve the Monarch High School community. We have been fortunate to work alongside each of them as they use their talents to make a difference in our school.
Along with the two of us, we are fortunate to have the following board members returning to the Board for the 2017-2018 school year.
- Brenda Brown – Treasurer
- Anita Harrington – Volunteer Coordinator
- Michelle Gazarik – Staff Appreciation
Thank you as well to our outgoing board members, Robin Goldstein-Lincoln and Jochen Manning-Lebek, for their service. We very much appreciate your contributions and hope you to stay in touch!
We asked our community to join our board and you did! A special thank you to the new PTSO Board members who will officially join the board in the new school year:
- Janelle Stanton – Newsletter/Website
- Shawnie Hanson – Fundraising
- Lorie Roch – Mini-Grants Coordinator
We are still looking for a couple volunteers to join the board, including a Secretary and Staff Appreciation Co-Chair, and would love to speak to you if you are interested. Meetings are at school, with the Principal and/or Vice Principal and are limited to 90 minutes per month. Please send us an e-mail at the address listed below if you would like to learn more.
Also, thanks to Eric Moroye and Dr. Jerry Anderson for attending each and every board meeting to answer questions and provide us with insight and counsel.
Last, but not least, thank you to you, our Monarch High School parents, for helping to provide over $10,000 in financial support for our school. The teachers are truly appreciative of everything you do to make the school great and so is the PTSO.
Have a terrific summer!
Cory Nickerson and Lynne Wexler
