Hello Serrano Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  We hope you have savored every minute of summer break and 
are as ready and excited as we are to get this year started.  My name is Jodi Kraft and I will be 
co-chairing our Parent Faculty Organization (PFO) Presidency with my friend Lindsay Chirdon.  This 
will be my eleventh year and Lindsay’s eighth year as part of the Serrano family.   Between the two 
of us, we have children attending Villa Park High School, Cerro Villa Middle School and our last 
little monkeys are both going into third grade here at Serrano.  Lindsay and I are eager to take on 
this role for the next two years and are thrilled to be surrounded with an amazing team serving on 
our PFO Board.

We are excited to team with our new Serrano Principal, Mr. Nate Garrett!  With his support, our 
main goals for Serrano PFO include:
• Streamlining and strengthening our communication processes.
• Enhancing the educational experience for students by supporting the needs of Serrano.
• Increasing parent volunteerism and involvement.

In order to provide Serrano with the foundation needed to reach these goals, we are asking for your 
membership and support!  There are many ways to be involved at Serrano.   We encourage you to find 
ways that work for you and jump in!  Whether it’s attending monthly PFO meetings, supporting a 
school event, helping with a fundraiser, or working on a committee, there are ways (big and small) 
to do your part and contribute to making our PFO the strongest one yet.

Thank you in advance for your support and please don’t hesitate to contact Lindsay or myself with 
questions, concerns and suggestions.  Last but not least, our first PFO meeting will be held at 
Serrano on Thursday, September 5th at 8:15am.  Hope to see you there!
