MANY THANKS!

volunteer S U P P L E M E N T

Harker Volunteer Appreciation Harker volunteers are truly amazing! From the lower school to the middle school to the upper school the Harker community is continually enriched by this group of dedicated volunteers. Harker volunteers are valued everywhere, including reading in a kindergarten class, participating in a classroom party, chairing Grandparents’ Day, helping with the lower school or middle school book fair, organizing teacher appreciation lunches, supporting the robotics program, welcoming new families and being a team parent for an athletic program. Volunteers also participate in programs and events that raise money for the school such as the annual picnic or fashion show. As you can see, there is a volunteer opportunity for everyone. Every volunteer hour given makes an enormous difference. Harker volunteers are the key to building our school community and their continued commitment is unparalleled. We hope you take a moment to browse through this newsletter which acknowledges and recognizes over 800 dedicated volunteers who have supported The Harker School throughout the 2007-08 school year. On behalf of the administrators, faculty, staff and students, THANK YOU to all the volunteers of The Harker School for your incredible service and dedication.

—Lisa Blickenstaff, Director of Volunteer Programs

—Denise Hayashi, K-8 Volunteer Program Manager
