Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the school year and hosting our last Parents of the Heart Meeting/Luncheon for 2017-2018. It has been an amazing year, and I cannot thank you, our incredible group of parents, enough. It has been such a privilege and an honor to serve as President of POTH. Thank you for your support.

We are so blessed to have a community of parents who want to be involved and give so much to our school. Thank you to the Committee Chairs and all parent volunteers for your creativity, energy, spirit and dedication that you have given to our beloved school. We are so grateful and appreciative of the many hours given to make our events successful: Fall Gathering, Annual Fund, Community Service drivers, Howard Area Baskets, POTH luncheons, Fine Arts/Gallery Night, Faculty Staff Appreciation Breakfast, Diversity Council/International Night, Angel Brunch, Sophie’s Net, Goal Award, Room Parents, Admission Coffees and Athletics. You have all made a huge impact on our community, and we thank you.

Quiz Night – we toast you for your success! Your idea to support Tuition

Assistance was so meaningful in creating a special event for our school.

Thank you!

To an amazing group of parents—thank you for making this community so special! Cheers!

Sincerely,


Michele Sparks
Parents of the Heart President 2017-18
