Dear Families,

Yesterday was one of my very best birthdays ever. I was born at Providence Hospital in Seattle on what my mom tells me was a beautiful, sunny day.  But since that morning in 1960, April 15th in Seattle has been mostly grey and rainy.  Yesterday was an exception; it was a beautiful, sunny day.  Birthdays are always a little better on beautiful, sunny days.

My day was filled with phone calls, emails, cards, posts, flowers, songs in the classrooms, on the playground, outside my office and shouts from open car windows at pick-up all wishing me a happy birthday. The PA brought me lunch.  My sons and one of my son’s fiancé took my husband and I out to dinner.  With so much good will, how could my birthday be anything but great? I am truly blessed. Thank you to everyone for your part in my wonderful day.

Tomorrow is another day for all us to make wonderful.  It is our virtual live auction, and with your help, it will be one of our very best  auctions ever.  Thanks to our amazing auction co-chairs, Amy Rosenfield and Diana Leppa; to our generous auction sponsors; to wonderful donors, and to all who have registered and begun bidding on items/ given to our funded need already, we are off to a great start. 

If you haven’t registered yet, please do. It’s not too late. Until we can all gather in person, let’s gather virtually. Join us on Remo for our virtual happy hour and to watch the live auction. Register on maxgiving to participate. There are links to our auction and to our virtual event and more information about both in this newsletter and on our website.

Enjoy the sunshine. Breathe. Pray. Choose kindness. Thank you for being a community that rises. Reach out if you can help or need help.


Peace and blessings,
Rosemary Leifer
