Origami crane dresses are one highlight of successful M-A fashion show
Menlo=Atherton High School seniors Katrina Wijaya and Misato Muraoka (profiled earlier this month) not only took part in this year’s fashion show but they modeled the dresses they designed using origami cranes.
The fashion show, chaired this year by Karen Fryling, Michelle Culhane, Nancy Kessler and Mary Fischer, is the PTA’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Twice a year, the PTA grants money to teachers and staff through its Mini-Grants program. Areas of support include clubs, leadership, academic enrichment, and equipment. The latest round of funding included new classroom technology, a special prom for students with severe disabilities, and materials for the Intercambio Language Exchange.
