It’s February and love is in the air here at GA. It’s Valentine’s Day, I "heart" GA Week in support of the annual fund and love is being shown all over campus toward our beloved Peter McVeigh. Thank you to each and every one of you for supporting our community in so many ways.
I would like to send some love to Genie Hill, Allison Herald and Anthony Commale for coordinating a successful and rewarding MLK Day of Service. Also, a special thank you to those parents who made time to come out to the parent sessions with our Athletic Director candidates. I always appreciate the opportunity to be included in the process and am thankful that at GA it is possible for us to do so.
This is the time of year when we start filling volunteer roles for next year, so please reach out if you would like to be a standing committee chair or a grade level co-chair next year. We are also looking to add a trivia night next year – if trivia is your thing we would love to have you on board. For a full list of volunteer opportunities, please CLICK HERE. If you would like to chat about any and all Parents' Committee opportunities, please contact me.
Our next Parents’ Committee meeting is Wednesday, March 8 at 7pm and it will be a speaker presentation by Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele. Watch your email for the full details.
I look forward to seeing you all around campus and on March 8. As always, please reach out if I can do anything for you or answer any questions about volunteer opportunities.
Peace and Love,
