Co-Presidents Letter March 2018

Dear Zervas Parents,

It’s an exciting week for Zervas! Our online Auction opened on Monday morning and will run through Sunday, March 11th. What does the money go towards, you ask? Well, it funds the PTO’s programming which helps to bring authors, artists, and scientists into the classroom through the Creative Arts and Sciences program. It funds teacher appreciation and professional development. It allows us to organize community events like Picnics, Game Night, Dynamic Diversity night and Movie Night. It also helps support Zervas families in need whether it’s a gift card at the holidays or financial assistance for a field trip. Please check out the wonderful items up for bid here:!

Speaking of Family Movie Night, come join us next Wednesday, March 14th at 6:30 p.m. in the Zervas Cafetorium for popcorn and movie shorts. We are proactively rescheduling this due to tonight’s forecast. Kick back and relax with your kids for the evening. Feel free to bring a blanket or pillow to make yourself more comfortable.

Last week was another great Dynamic Diversity night organized by Amy Behrens and Rashin Khosravibavandpouri. They worked very hard to put together an elementary age-appropriate program teaching about the experience of refugees. The kids were engaged by the speakers, games, and dancers. Thanks so much, Amy and Rashin.

At the end of January, Peter Malagodi and Ginna Martin helped bring Eureka Toys to Zervas for another fun Game Night. Approximately 180 people came, spread around the cafetorium and played some serious games! It was exciting to see so many families enjoying an evening devoid of electronics. Thanks, Peter and Ginna.

Looking ahead, book a sitter for Saturday, April 28th for the first annual Spring Fling, aka the 2018 Kentucky Zerby, starting at 7 p.m. at Zervas. Usually an Auction party is the culminating event at the end of a week of online bidding. This year, that Auction party has been separated from most of the bidding and transformed into the Zerby, the themed party for this year’s Spring Fling. It will be a fabulous, adults-only party with a delicious dinner, festive drinks, a fun DJ, and opportunities to bid on Community Events like dinner parties and playdates, events that are only available to the Zervas community. If you would like to offer up a Community Event for bid, please reach out to Wendy Feiner at Come reconnect with friends or make new ones. It should be a blast!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or a burning desire to volunteer. We can find a position for you, even if it’s only for a couple of hours a year.

Thanks so much,

Alicia Collins and Jenn Martin
PTO Co-presidents
