It has been a busy week of classroom holiday parties and events for the kiddos! Our Appreciation committee and volunteers made sure our teachers and staff got a holiday treat too by putting together a beautiful winter staff luncheon yesterday. Hope everyone enjoyed a delicious meal. 😋 Winter Break is almost here!

Today we had the pleasure of hosting our Riverglades PTA committee chairs at our annual holiday luncheon and gift exchange. It has been a fantastic year so far, in large part because of the hard work of these dedicated parent volunteers. The Riverglades PTA executive board would like to thank all our chairs (including the handful that could not make it today) for your leadership, creativity, flexibility, and can-do spirit. Our PTA is what it is because of all of you.

Special thanks to our Appreciation chairs Lorin Kowal and Kate Moreno for putting together such a lovely event, and to @sicilianoven for hosting us!

Happy holidays, gators! ❤️🐊 12/13/2023
