2010.05.05 Mary Gautz: Staff commended for Annie, Jr.

Written by David Green.

Just wanted to take a moment to recognize and publicly thank Mr. Filipek, Mrs. Acuña and Mr. DeVoe for their vision, motivation and just plain hard work in taking on an all-school production like Annie Jr.  It was a delight and a great opportunity for our kids in community theatre.  Really a top notch show.

It was a tremendous and heroic effort on the part of these adults to undertake this. Way above and beyond their usual responsibilities, typical work day, or their job descriptions. I greatly appreciate their efforts and enthusiasm. Especially for teachers or staff on the rookie end of the seniority list, this was an amazing first big project. 

Thank them in person and they will graciously deflect and share their success with all. They will remind you that many were involved in this, such as the teens who stepped up and jumped in too.  Thanks, kids. You guys were SO good with the little ones.

Thanks to all our teachers and staff, who give more than they need to. Our humble, and understated, thanks.
