Directors' Corner- Ms. Ibanez & Ms. Blankenship

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. A huge shoutout to our amazing social officers, Ms. Blankenship, and social parent Melissa Sylvester for a fabulous Rette banquet last Thursday at Texas Star. Their decorations transformed the space into a magical night. We had a ton of fun dancing and celebrating our dancers. And shout out to Ms. Pinto and her daughter Anaih for their great photo booth to capture the memories from the night as well as a BIG thank you to Mrs. Stout for capturing memories for the team as well. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday at the booster meeting at 7pm in the library. Let me know if you have any questions. -Mrs. Ibanez
