Yesterday's Fall Fest goes in the books as our best yet! There was great participation from the school and from our COFA membership. In less than an hour the art was hung, quad was set, decorated and ready to go as the end of school bell rang. Big thanks to the entire team that made it all happen: Directors-Natisha Njetu and Diana Wang, Publicity-Kathryn Aurelio, Art Show Curator-Sophia Jang, Designers-Anna Lee and Allyson Lee, ASB-Paris, Fenstermaker and crew, Teachers, Volen, Geiser, Ting, Marquez, Mathen, Coburn, our janitorial staff, administration, assistant directors-Mina Han, Jacqueline Chang, Charis Lee, Khushi Desai, Kurtis Liang.
The highlight for me was the spirit of volunteerism that was on display from beginning to end. We had so many helping hands. We even had Randall Alexander (COFA class of 2018) and family donate and cook the hot dogs that were given away.
Be sure to jot down a reflection of the event and save it for submission as evidence for your Laureate award.
