NEWS FROM MRS. FIEBKE-LANG

Dear Guest Families -


How many of you enjoyed getting "splashed" during the Color Run? I know the Guest staff certainly did! We also had a terrific time dancing and visiting with all our students and Guest families. Our second annual Color Splash and Dash Run was a success. This event would not have been possible without the dedication of our PTA, volunteers, and staff. Additionally, we thank everyone who sold raffle tickets to support our largest school fund raiser. Congratulations to our raffle winners:


Marge and Richard Braun - $500.00

Koon Family - $250.00

& Vikki Anderson - $150.00


The event organizers, Leslie Kirk and Amy Stasak, said, “We had a vision of what we hoped to accomplish, and in the end it wasn't even about the money we raised, but the pure joy on all the faces of our kiddos! Just as we expected, the students are already talking about doing it again next year. Thanks to all our Wildcat Champs!


Sincerely,


Michelle Fiebke-Lang, Principal,

Guest Staff & PTA
