Dear Parents and Friends,

Could you feel it yesterday? The spirit of community and joy? Yesterday's Champagne Brunch was a labor of love by so many of you. I walked in the kitchen at 8am to find a crew prepping the food but wiping their brows from the intense heat. Everyone had been so focused on the task at hand that no one thought of opening the windows! Because of your love for the children and the school, you overlooked the little inconvenience. Yet it sure helped getting those windows open and a fan going.

So many of you put in four, eight, ten, fifteen hours of work for this event. God gave you strength. Everyone deserves a big thank-you. I for one will try to do so as soon as I see each of you in person. May we all take our hats off to Macrina and Samar for organizing the event. All of those who sweated in the kitchen, think of it as your workout for the week. You can skip the gym. Thank you all!

Sincerely,

Tikhon Thompson
