THANK YOU to Matt and Jolene Lodding for running the PD Variety Show last Saturday! We also want to give a special thank you to a few volunteers that were not recognized at the show, but were a huge part of making the show run smoothly.  Anu Fisher helped with the program design, emcee script, and organization.  Dave Fieldman was backstage and played a huge roll in getting the bands and other musicians set up and sound checked. Ray Kinney from Blooming Color in Naperville & Lombard, who for the third year in a row has printed, folded, and provided the program for free. Lastly, thanks to all the parents and students for making the 2018 PD Variety Show a success!
