Congratulations to our exuberant and enthusiastic volunteer of the month for March – Colleen Lowe!

Colleen is always willing to help with a smile on her face! 

Colleen is one of those people who step up and fill in the gaps when others won’t. She has been super helpful with the auction and spent the majority of her time supporting the volunteer needs. She scheduled and  trained volunteers to make sure the event would be successful. She organized all the snacks and food to keep the volunteers’ energy level high. She coordinated with other local West Seattle schools (Fairmount Park, Lafayette and Alki) to trade volunteers which allows each school community to attend their own auction and still have experienced volunteer coverage.  She even helped us organize and put away all the auction stuff this week!  We so appreciate Colleen and are thrilled she is being recognized. – Christine Kraynek

Thank you Colleen for your generous support of our school. You will have have your own dedicated parking spot in the front of our school. We appreciate you!

Here’s what Colleen has to say about volunteering at school:

I volunteer as an enrichment class chaperone and parent helper, I teach genius hour knitting to those fabulous third graders and this year I was front office team lead for our auction.  I also like to volunteer at other schools auctions.  Although it’s not a volunteer position,  I’m also a Study Club instructor and I love being a part of that after school program.

I love being involved in my daughter’s school.  I started out volunteering in her classroom and branched out and it’s been so rewarding.  I don’t even have a 3rd grader but since I teach 3rd grade genius hour I know quite a few 3rd (and now 4th) graders and I adore my knitters. I realized that volunteers play a huge role at Genesee Hill and there are so many great volunteers to work with and learn from.  I think we have a great community at Genesee Hill.
