Good morning, Falcon Family. This is my first welcome post as the incoming PTO President and I’m excited about the upcoming school year. The irony of writing this is no one knows this site exists yet. So let me take a minute, back up and tell you how this started.
I’m Dena Macdonald. I’m a graphic designer by trade, but eventually stumbled into marketing. I loved my job and my co-workers but was downsized and like so many in similar situations, will now tell you it was indeed a blessing in disguise. My main job now is wife and mom, and yes, I do love it and yes, I do know how lucky I am. I remember being that mom running into SACC at 6pm on the dot, yelling, “I’m here! I’m here!” I don’t miss that. Neither does the SACC personnel.
I (we) have one son, who is an incoming 8th grader. I was Secretary of the PTO last year under the awesome leadership of Kim Hammon (I have big shoes to fill). Somehow, I was voted in as President in May, and … here we are. This “blog” as I’m calling it, will literally be my random ramblings, thoughts and ponderings about this school year. I have no idea how often I will post. I have no idea how long each post will be. (I do know. They’ll be short.) I have no idea if anyone will read it, besides my mother. (Thanks, Mom.)
I hope our new site helps keep you informed and this blog a tiny bit entertained. If yes to either, then pass it on. I look forward to seeing you soon. ~Dena
