📢Volunteer Spotlight📢Let’s show Christy some love❤️! She makes sure that the school newsletter AKA Ebulletin is in your mailbox 💌every Sunday. Believe us this is no small task! Here is her full testimony on being a Toro Volunteer!
“When my daughter started at Montera, I was seeking the connection with other parents that I missed from elementary school while affording my daughter the space she wanted to be on her own. I felt strongly that activities like theatre could be offered at Montera if given a bit of a boost. As soon as I stepped up, I found teachers, staff, and other parents to be receptive to new ideas and input. Working on the spring benefit gave me the connection I was seeking with other parents. And now, maintaining the eBulletin keeps me connected to the pulse of the school. My kids see that I value their school and their experience, because they see me spending time to help make it the best it can be. Even the smallest effort can make a huge impact.-Christy Bradshaw”
