Back to School BBQ Thank You!

The PTO would like to thank all the wonderful volunteers who made the Back to School BBQ a resounding success despite the rain.

All the 1st grade parents who volunteered, especially the organizing team of 1st grade room parents: Evelyn Chen, Nancy Cho, Holly Deak, Lauren Dwyer, Greg Fenton, Amy Kline, and Abby Wilson. This amazing team was led by Avery Forman, who had the foresight to arrange tents for the evening. We appreciate the tremendous effort that you all put in to make this a memorable celebration for our children. It turned out to be a night they will remember for the whole year!

Kathy Calvillo, the PTO committee leader for this event. Her detailed notes, diagrams and advice have helped First-grade parents host this BBQ year after year.

Evelyn Shen and Yen-Lin Chen for organizing the Heath Garden Sale, which offered freshly grown tomatoes, herbs, pickled beets and home-made pesto.

Principal Asa Sevelius for helping with the set up and staying till the very end despite getting soaked.

Vice Principal Michael Smith for setting up the sound system twice and DJ’ing. He had kids of all ages dancing and having a great time in the gym!

Guidance Counselor David Chaet and 4th Grade Teacher Josh Kraus for their grilling expertise.

School Custodians Chris Glidden and Mark Powers, who worked tirelessly from set up to break down, helping at every step of the way with a smile on their faces.

Finally, we would like to thank all the families and teachers who attended the BBQ for supporting our Heath community.

We look forward to seeing you all at our next school event: The Fall Book fair that starts on October 2nd!

Your Heath PTO Leadership Team
