Columbia High School teachers, administrators and staff were treated to individual boxes of homemade cookies on Wednesday, provided by CHS families.

Organized for the third year in a row by parent volunteers Leah Gomberg and Barbara Cokorinos with the support of the CHS Home and School Association, more than 75 cookie bakers and an amazing team of “elves” packaged more than 300 individual boxes of cookies.

The gesture was a way for the HSA and parent volunteers to show teachers and staff how much their dedication and hard work is appreciated. CHS principal Elizabeth Aaron said, “We are so very grateful to the CHS community for taking time in what is a very busy season to create such a sweet treat for the CHS staff. The cookie day has quickly become a much-looked forward to CHS staff tradition!”

They have been packaging cookies together since their sons (now juniors at CHS) were students at Clinton Elementary. “We could not do this without the incredible generosity shown by the CHS families – over 75 bakers and 21 cookie packagers.”  They also thanked Principal Aaron for her enthusiasm and strong support of this project.

Clinton Elementary, Seth Boyden and South Orange Middle School HSAs also package cookies for teachers and staff.
