Last Opportunity to Meet the School Board Candidates
Staff Appreciation Week May 4-8 !!!
Good afternoon parents! As promised, here is the full schedule for our staff during the Annual Staff Appreciation Week and how we could use your help.
Monday – Our PTA will be providing breakfast to kick off their week.
Tuesday – Our PTA is providing an “End of Day Dessert Cart”.
Wednesday – “Book Shop” during lunch. We welcome donations that the teachers would enjoy for their summer pleasure reading. This is not for their classroom library but rather for their own relaxation. Please bring your books to the workroom between now and Wednesday May 6.
Thursday – “Staff Luncheon and Boutique”. Our PTA will provide the lunch, but we need boutique items. Any new gift or gift card donation for the boutique valued from $15-$25 would be greatly appreciated. Please deliver items to school no later than Tuesday, May 5, so we can get a final count and display. Our goal is 100 gifts.
Friday – “Flowers and Notes” for teachers. Have students bring fresh, homegrown or wild picked flowers for the teachers with a note of appreciation. Room Parents, please make sure you have a vase for your teacher ready that morning!
Thank you in advance for helping treat our staff to a wonderful week. Thank you for making this event the success it has been!
Please email if you have any questions,
