Kindergarten Autumn Festival Welcomes Rea Elementary Students

Last Tuesday, we welcomed 36 children from Rea Elementary to our beautiful Kindergarten Autumn Festival.  The children had a great time doing crafts and going through the obstacle course.  The festival was gorgeous and delightful as always.  A big huge thank you to everyone who spent the morning setting up, hosting the event for our own kindergarten students and then staying to meet new friends from Rea.  Their teacher loved the apple peeling activity so much, she was contemplating running over to the Company of Angels on the spot, to grab one of those apple peelers for her classroom the next day.  Thank you to our community parent Megan Brown for organizing this great new friendship.


desserts2Enlightened Evening Success!

We know many of you are eager to know the financial results of our fundraiser.  Drum roll please......we raised $60,850 in profit.  So that is $60,850 that will be allocated to our school's operating budget for the current year.  It was a tremendous endeavor that could not have happened without the help and support of everyone....from the donations, to the attendees, to the sponsors, and to the hefty team of talented volunteers.  It was a beautiful night that accomplished what was needed for our school's budget.  We are very grateful to Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club for their generosity in allowing us to remain under budgeted expenses, even with the weather requiring a tented roof overhead.  Thank you all.  We are very grateful to be part of this amcenterpieceazing community.


In appreciation,
