A Note of Appreciation
Dear Saint Peter School Community,
I am sorry that I could not share my words of gratitdue in person at the November PA meeting. Due to a family emergency, I was out of the office for most of November.
Thank you for pitching in your time, talent, and treasure towards the Oktoberfest & Country Store fundraiser. You really did a wonderful thing. The country raffles looked phenomenal. The room looked festive. The children’s activities area was buzzing with activity. Seeing our community working together is a beautiful thing. It truly makes my work at Saint Peter School not feel like work.
Your contribution benefits the academics and enrichment offerings at Saint Peter School. I will provide you a better update of the amount raised once I am settled back into the office.
It truly takes a village to create a successful fundraiser. Thank you to the wonderful parents and guardians who helped make this family-friendly fundraiser possible. A special thanks to the PA Co-Chairs – Ms. Wendy Burns & Mrs. Kathyr Ranger, the energetic group of dynamic Room Parents, Oktoberfest Co-Chair, Ms. Romana Cassi who helped ensure the night of the event ran smoothly, Mrs. Kristin Sullivan for doing a phenomenal job emceeing the country raffle and grand raffle. She was able to get everyone out the door by 8:00 P.M., too! I am excited to announce Mrs. Sullivan will be our emcee for the upcoming Gala held on March 14, 2020. We are lucky to have her. Last but not least, the incredible team of professionals from the school and parish side.
The students are truly the stars of the show for working hard in selling the grand raffle tickets. From posting their video on social media to sell tickets to family and friends outside the Boston area, setting up a table to capture folks returning home from work, and knocking on their neighbor’s doors. Your hard work pays off – the school truly benefits from your help.
I welcome your Oktoberfest event feedback. I plan to work on the post-event survey. Please keep an eye out for it.
Again, thanks so much for all you’ve done for our kick-off fundraiser. Here’s to another great year.
Mrs. Eve Encinas-Lončar
