PTO Presidents: We want to take a moment to recognize Carrie Napolilli and Margie Bradley for doing an amazing job in the president/co-president positions this year! This spring has sent everyone into a tailspin but you have managed to keep us all together and have done an incredible job ensuring Lenski is poised for success!  Carrie, thank you for the past 2 years of service as president! You have worked tirelessly advocating for what is best for the entire Lenski community. You have had so many wonderful ideas, portrayed great leadership and always went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure everything was done correctly, everyone was well-informed and no detail was missed! Thank you so much for all your time, blood, sweat and tears! Lenski is fortunate to have you!
We have a few PTO members we would like to publicly acknowledge as they have given so much to Lenski and the PTO and will now be moving on! Suzette Loving has been the technology lead for many years.  She started the committee and has since helped Lenski become a state-of-the-art STEM school in LPS! Suzette has also been responsible for the annual golf tournament for which she has put in countless hours securing the venue, obtaining sponsors, prizes, etc.  We are sad to see her go, especially since the golf tournament wasn't as expected this year but we are forever grateful for all her time and effort supporting Lenski and the PTO! In addition, Amy Silverman will be moving on from Lenski as well. Amy has held a variety of roles for the PTO; most recently she has been in charge of School Services and creating and managing all of our JotForms for various events. Amy has pitched in to help with many Lenski activities through the years and we will miss having her at Lenski!   Last, we want to say thank you to Amanda Dail for all your help with PTO over the years. Most recently, Amanda was in charge of King Soopers cards and has done a great job keeping these avenues of "free money" going strong for Lenski.  Thank you all for your help and support for Lenski over the past few years!  We will miss you all and wish you the very best!
