6th Grade Carnival a HUGE Success

Our sixth grade students completed yet another Pay-it-Forward project this year, continuing our Recess Coin Carnival tradition.  Thanks to our 6th graders’ hard-work and dedication, Conestoga grades K-5’s participation and incredibly generous donations, as well as kind Conestoga staff contributions of all sorts, we raised $809.03, which converts to over 36,000 Sudanese pounds.  As an additional bonus, we will be donating the collected funds to an organization dedicated to providing water to needy Sudanese children.  A special thank you goes to Mr. Mattern, who took the time to connect a wonderful reading unit, A Long Walk to Water, by Linda Sue Park, to this cause. 

Again, many thanks to all of you for your support in this and all things here at Conestoga; it is blatantly apparent that we, as a school community, really do care.

Heartfelt Thank You

Dear PTO, Teachers/Staff and Conestoga Families,

My life was truly blessed the first day I stepped foot in Conestoga Elementary School to assume my role as the new secretary.  That was 20 years ago!  It’s been a wonderful career with lots of great memories. I’ve loved meeting the hundreds of families in this community and getting to know you and all of your children.  As I’m preparing for my retirement from this school, I now know the true meaning of bittersweet – pleasant, but with elements of regret.

Last evening was the final PTO family picnic that I will attend, and to my total surprise, I was given a beautiful message and presentation about the school bench that was dedicated to me.  It’s a really neat bench.  Thank you SO much for your kind gift and I know people will enjoy it for many years to come.
