Holiday Appreciation Luncheon Planning

Dear Parents,

On December 7th, the Parents Association will be hosting our annual Holiday Appreciation Luncheon to honor our dedicated Faculty, Staff and Board of the Maharishi School. This is a special and cherished event that has a history of being the highlight of the year for many of the devoted individuals who make it possible for this school to offer Consciousness-Based education to our precious children.

Every year this event is made possible because parents get in the holiday spirit of giving from the heart and contribute their time, money and organizing power and students take this opportunity to serve their educators. We are so grateful to all those who have contributed in the past and especially want to thank Cattrione Faircrest, Celeste Siemsen and Maricela Stakland for their leadership over the past few years. We are proud to continue the tradition of this event being not only hosted but funded by the parents of Maharishi School students and invite you all to consider making a contribution. If interested in contributing, please contact Celeste Siemsen, 472-0337, or Annalisa Miller, 472-0868.

This year we are asking every parent who is not on Faculty, Staff or the Board to please give to this event in as many ways as you can but most especially by: 1) baking 2-4 dozen cookies that will get arranged into assorted cookie plates to be given to every guest (more details about when and where to bring the cookies will come later this month) and 2) volunteering for at least one of the following areas:

  • Cookie Plate Assembly
  • Dining Area Set Up
  • Table Decoration
  • Serving
  • Clean Up

Please go to this Google Doc to sign up for one or more of these areas!! Please join us in in offering our deepest gratitude to our dear Faculty, Staff and Board.

If you have any questions or are interested in making a donation to this event, please contact Celeste Siemsen, 472-0337 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
