What do You Call a Cadre of Volunteers? At this time of year when we are extra mindful for all that we are grateful, Mrs. Dahlgren, Our Lady of Perpetual Asphalt, wanted to stop and acknowledge her cadre of playground volunteers, returning and new, who enthusiastically signed on to monitor recesses rain and shine. These moms and dads reliably arrive for duty excited to share part of their day with our students. So while most groups have a special name – a pod of orca, a gaggle of geese – Mrs. Dahlgren calls a cadre of volunteers a blessing. Happy Thanksgiving to All!
