School appreciates support

To the editor:

Longfellow Elementary School wishes to express its appreciation to everyone in the community who supported our ‘Sneak Peak at Summer Fun’ Family Night held on May 4. Encouraging family involvement with the school, the evening provided parents the opportunity to explore summer activities available in Sidney and Shelby County for their children.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the Sneak Peak participants: Amos Library, Sidney Parks and Recreation, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Sidney Fire Department, Sidney Police Department, Ross Historical Society, Juggler Craig Muhlenkamp, Shelby County Soil and Conservation, 4H, Cub Scouts, Wilson Health, P.T. Services, Shelby County Health Department, Family Video, Shelby County Counseling, Shelby County Sheriff’s Department, and Ms. Karyn Bay. Several of these organizations participated by volunteering their time, sharing information about their organization, doing fun activities with our students, as well as donating door prizes and items for use at this event.

We also wish to recognize the following businesses for their generous donations: Bel-Mar Lanes, Dannon Yogurt, McDonald’s, Sidney Foodtown, Piqua Speedway and Walmart.

Longfellow’s staff, Parent Advisory Council, students, and families appreciate all the volunteers and businesses for making this event such a huge success.
