Friday's Spring Fling was a wonderful success. Thank you so much to Lori Satov for giving the students an opportunity to perform.
Many parent volunteers need to be thanked - too many to name them all. Some key ones are: Judy for leading the decorating team (it was fantastic!), Toni for student sign ups, Borja for sound, Susan for the raffle baskets (and thanks to all of the parents who contributed), Rachel for bake sale, and Jacqueline for food. All of these people had loads of help - thanks to everyone who joined in! Thank you to Ed for mc'ing and to the kid wranglers Zoe and Joanne.
And special thanks to former Tennyson students Max (with friend Kevin), Benjy, Josh, Zoe, and Anika for volunteering their time.
The $200+ 50/50 prize was claimed at the event (I don't remember who it was ... I was so upset to be only one number away!). The raffle basket winners have been contacted (the winners are listed below the photos).
The students were the stars of the show. They are all so wonderfully brave and talented ... thank you to everyone who performed. Enjoy the photos. As always, thank you to Tim Botham for his efforts to make sure we have these events properly photo documented. Trust me, I know (exactly!) how long it takes to weed all the photos and get them ready to present. Here is a link to all of the photos (more than below) in case parents would like high resolution images of their performers.
Thank you to the following businesses who supported our Spring Fling this year:
Randal Kurt Photography, Kitsilano Liquor Store, Vine and Hops, Pete's Meats, Cafe Artigiano (Zoe and Shawn Read)
And, most of all, the HUGEST thanks goes out to RBC and their community grant program. They not only provided us with 6 of their employees to work at the event, they also provided Lord Tennyson Elementary with a much appreciated $1000 cheque! Thank you very much RBC!
