A Neat Feeling & A Thanks To White Dove Coffee

Last week, I came to the FALA Campus in the early afternoon to pick up my Daughter.  It was the day before school was about to be off for the Winter Break.  As I walked around the building towards the Front Office, I was immediately flagged down by Sarah Buss waving at me from under the Art area with the biggest smile on her face.  She yelled across the courtyard a big “Thank You!” 

At first, I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about…  I smiled back at her trying to cover my confusion – and as I yelled a “Your Welcome” I finally realized what she meant.  

That day, the Appreciation Team had brought in fresh baked Biscotti (which was baked by the volunteers) and Coffee/Tea (which was Donated by White Dove Coffee) for the Teachers and Staff.  I had totally forgotten that it was that day because my Team is so self-sufficient.  Yes, they had kept me in the loop via email about their ideas, but they are such an amazing group with so much initiative that I had totally forgotten what they were up to…!

I have to tell you all that I have such a sense of pride.  A neat feeling that keeps coming back to me as I think about not only the energy that these people are giving to the school, but also the response that was so open and honest.  It is exactly what I had hoped when we all put together this team!  Success is a great feeling.

So, I’d like to simply say “Thank you” to all of my awesome volunteers for allowing me to share in this emotion.  A special shout-out to the Appreciation Team – Alisa Ashley, Sherri O’Neil, Gessica Neilson, Laurah Hagen, and Melissa Rhodes.

Happy Holidays!
