Thank you!

Today we held the first of our volunteer appreciation events - the volunteer drive through. A group of teachers worked with our volunteer coordinator, Heidi Lindstrom, to plan the event. We had a terrific turn out from staff who were ready to say thank you. We stood at the ready to thank anyone who would drive in and accept a hot cup of Caribou coffee, a doughnut from Donut Star or a flower from Madelin Rose Floral. Shadow joined us and was full of antics throughout the morning. We had a good turnout from volunteers, but there were still leftover doughnuts when we cleaned up at 8am, so we need to get more folks in next year.

Our next volunteer appreciation event is the always popular Treats Under the Trees on Wednesday, May 27 at 3:00 p.m. Please join us to celebrate all of the work that our volunteers do to make Sioux Trail great!

The Finished Product

I have posted several blogs that highlighted the progress of our wonderful mural in the cafeteria. The official unveiling will take place before our carnival on May 1, but it is available for you to see anytime Sioux Trail is open. This wonderful piece of art has captured the spirit and energy of Sioux Trail and made our cafeteria a much brighter place.

Special thanks to Nancy Birch, Mark Glende and our artist Jane Elias. This project would not have been possible without their ideas, leadership and expertise.
