Valentine’s Dance: 

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Sweetheart Dance and to all the families and children who donated supplies to the Alfred Cramer School! We (and they) greatly appreciate your kindness and generosity. There’s nothing better than the feeling of giving back!

A big thank you to Mrs. Cirelli, Mrs. Smagula, Mrs. Leach, Mrs. McCann, Mrs. Fromme, Mrs. Kesten, Mr. Scott and Dr. Burns for coming and showing off their dance moves!

Thank you to Nancy Volk, Mara Glauberg, Vikki Fordahl and Jill Ellermeyer for all their hard work organizing the entire event!  Thank you also to the many parent volunteers who gave of their time on Saturday to set up/clean up the gym and run all the stations.  You were indispensable and we would not have been able to host the dance without you.
