by Niki Anconetani, parent and Trivia Chair (12/6/2010):
What a privilege it was to take part as chair person for the 1st ever OMS Trivia Party and Auction. It turned out to be a huge success in so many ways. We had a great turn out of over 250 guests, we raised thousands of dollars to help improve our wonderful school, and we had a blast doing it!
Best of all was the amazing camaraderie amongst the parents here at OakHaven. I know I don’t just speak for myself when it comes to the enthusiasm I feel for the relationships and friendships that were built while we planned the event. This is what really strengthens our school community.
The Henrichs’ and the brilliant staff at OakHaven do more than their fair share for this amazing school and the rest is up to the families. When we do these things together because we believe in something, it’s not just the monetary gain that’s so great – we’re also setting the standard for how we as parents and the future parents of OMS will want to conduct ourselves if we want to continue to have such a wonderful place to take our children. So, hats off to the OMS pioneer families for stepping up and making a difference! Let’s keep the momentum going and make next year an even bigger success!
I’m so proud to be a part of such an amazing and powerful group of people!
