Dear Parents, Volunteers, Sponsors, and Supporters,
Our video highlighting the best moments of the TMSA Apex 2023 Cultural Festival is now available for viewing. It is with great joy that I also take this opportunity to express my heartfelt appreciation to the unsung heroes who made our first cultural festival an incredible success.
Our primary goal for the festival was to create an opportunity for our students to explore the interconnectedness of the world and develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of the human condition. Thanks to your unwavering support and contributions, we were able to achieve this and more. The festival was also a testament to the power of collaboration between parents, students, and volunteers in fostering understanding, harmony, and empathy among our students and the wider community. It was truly a remarkable showcase of our school's values and the strength of our community.
I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to Mrs. Megha Patel, whose dedication, hard work, and unwavering commitment brought the entire festival idea to life. Without her tireless efforts, we would not have been able to host such an extraordinary event.
Additionally, I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Elena Tselishcheva, Nukhba Akbar, Sony Paulson, Bala Aswini Arunagiri, Eswaran Balakrishnan, Gowtami Beeram, Angela Warren, Marwa Cayli (TMSA Board Member), Haripriya Srinivasan, Dmitri Malyshev, Ksenia Malyshev, Laura Aponte Hughes, Priscilla Yi, Shridhar Patel, and all the TMSA Apex Parent Volunteers for their invaluable contributions. Your dedication and support were instrumental in making the festival a resounding success. I would also like to recognize our high school student volunteers, Ahish Pidikiti, Elizabeth Sajan, Hasan Munir, Misha Patel, Sai Pradyumna Aragani, Soham Kela and other student volunteers for their outstanding efforts in the festival preparations.
A special appreciation goes to our incredibly talented performers: Batala Durham, Hum Sub, Academy of Kalari Adimurai & Carolina Tamil Kalaikkoodam, and RCLS Taiwanese Cultural Club & Formosa Association of Student Culture Ambassadors. Your performances brought immense joy and cultural richness to our festival, creating an extraordinary experience for all who attended.
Furthermore, I would like to express our deep gratitude to the sponsors and donors who generously supported our festival. To Best Brains' Santana Rufus, Patel Brothers' Umang Patel, we extend our sincerest thanks for your sponsorship. We thank Wegmans, Publix, Kanki, Outback Steakhouse, Museum of Life and Science, and Learning Express for your in-kind donations.
Last but not least, I want to take a moment to express our profound gratitude to Apex Mayor Jacques Gilbert for not leaving us alone on this special day. His presence and unwavering support for TMSA were invaluable, and we deeply appreciate his dedication to our school community.
And, my dear hardworking team... Thank you for your unwavering support and for going above and beyond to ensure the success of our school and the well-being of our students.
