Arnel Saludares

Arnel took on the difficult responsibility of running concessions for our carnival in order to raise money for the 4th grade class for their 5th grade party. Despite very little experience with handling concessions, not much historical data to use for guidance, and not many volunteers to help him, Arnel was very positive and professional during the whole process. He did his job with no complaints and contributed significantly to the success of the carnival!

Celina de Leon

Celina is our 5th Grade Party Coordinator who is also tasked with raising funds for the 5th Grade End-of-Year celebration. She tackled down the idea of having a poinsettia sale with the goal of selling 240 poinsettias. We had to end the sale earlier than expected because we sold out of poinsettias! She is the girl who will make calls and get your PTA all the hook ups you never knew could happen. We are lucky to have her on our team this year!

Mercedes Trujillo

After attending the Volunteer appreciation luncheon last year, Mercedes saw that we were still in need of help and willingly agreed to fill any role we needed her in! She graciously accepted the role of Silent Auction Coordinator and has been hard at work ever since the summer securing great auction items for our school. Through her leadership, we were able to DOUBLE the number of auction items this year. She even roped in her husband to help! (Thanks Matt!) Her SIlent Auction committee set a goal of $8,000 and we were able to exceed that amount during the very last hour of bidding. Through her and her committee's efforts, the auction raised over $9,000 to fund teacher grants this year. Thank you so much for all your hard work, Mercedes!

Julie Tran

As a seasoned fundraising expert, Julie brought all her notes and organization to the table and made our movie night such a huge success. She kept detailed records from the previous year which helped with the planning for this year tremendously. To say that her spreadsheets are IMMACULATE, perfectly thought-out, easy to follow, and incredibly logical - is an understatement. Watching her grow from planning and organizing Fall Movie Night last year to this year, it is apparent that she has really filled into her shoes and taken on the form of a great leader. She is able to plan, delegate, communicate effectively, and execute reliably. We are so thankful for her continued involvement and leadership on the PTA!

August 2023  Linda Le

We knew Linda was perfect for PTA ever since seeing her go to great lengths to win the Membership Drive and most funds raised for the Glow Run last year! She is 100% all in, goes above and beyond every time, and is extremely reliable and proactive. She has had a busy summer planning our Kindergarten Orientation, Boohoo/Yahoo Breakfast, Popsicles at the Park night, anti-bullying assembly for August and more! We are so glad she has joined the team and can’t wait to see what great things she continues to do this year!

Kimberly Listi

As volunteer of the year last year, we were so happy to bring on Kimberly as our Volunteer Coordinator this year. Kimberly is always willing to pitch in a helping hand, she gets the job done, and she won't take no for an answer! In addition - she's a STELLAR baker and our hospitality team wouldn't have been the same without her last year.
