Office of the President
Dear St. Serra parents,
Thank you for your gift of time, talent and treasure this school year. Each and every family's participation is valued and appreciated. I would like to applaud our leaders and their teams of volunteers for sharing their caring hearts and creating amazing events for our students and families.
Thank you to PTO VP HeartRun, Teacia Andrew
, and E
vent Chairs, Mrs. Gina Christiansen and Mrs. Michele Polana
whose vision, hard work and commitment to make this year's "
Love Your Heart-Share Your Roar
" HeartRun a wonderful success! From the student-designed paper hearts lining the field, to the red shirts blazing around the track to raise awareness and funds for heart disease in honor of their loved ones--St. Serra 's campus was filled with love and energy! We are thankful to every committee member and volunteer who made the
day so heartfelt!
We are pleased to announce that our HeartRun raised over $8,000, with $6,000 donated to the American Heart Association!
