Dear parents and families,
Wow! What an amazing event yesterday at Montrose! Our school was packed and filled with so much joy, laughter, smiles, and FUN! Our annual Fun For All was simply wonderful! The bright colors, festive decorations, silly games, all of the events and activities, the kindness of friends and neighbors, and the wonderful smells of popcorn and cotton candy filling the air!
A BIG SPECIAL THANK YOU TO NIKKI BARDEN and EMILY PERFECT for chairing this wonderful event! They poured their hearts into it and it was such a success!
I want to also thank Tracie Baum, Stephanie Borders, Greer Fitzegerald, Rachel Holland, and Kasey Shaw for supporting the event and its entiriety.
And this event would not be possible without ALL OF YOU, our volunteers, for your help organizing the event, baking all of the food, running the activities, and all of your volunteer work. Thank you!!!
Please enjoy some of the pics from yesterday! Love those smiles!
Enjoy your week!
