The Second Annual Parker Talent Show was on Friday. Sarah Biondello did a great job organizing the performance. Gabe and Jonah were funny masters of ceremony. Much talent of every description was in evidence - musicians, dancers, and actors were superb. And I haven't laughed so hard in a long time!

Seventh graders helped at a spaghetti dinner in Troy on Saturday night that raised funds for five social service organizations. They worked hard and made a real difference! Thanks to the Moms, Dads, and teachers who were there, too.
2-3's delivered 157 food items to the food pantry at Catholic Charities last week and helped to stock shelves. There is also a need for personal items, so they will organize another drive this spring.
