Staff Appreciation Week is May 3rd – 7th
Relax and Unwind at the Beach!
We have several fun things planned for the week, and we need everyone’s help to make it a success. We’re promoting a spirit week where students can do small things to show how much they appreciate their teacher and the staff, and this year’s theme is “Relax and Unwind at the Beach.” In addition the PTA has other things planned like a beach themed gift for everyone on staff, and a gift card drawing each day of the week.
Staff Appreciation Gift Card Drawing: Closed – Thank you everyone who donated!
Staff Appreciation Spirit Week:
We will be celebrating our annual Teacher and Staff Appreciation the first week of May. This year’s theme is Relax and Unwind at the Beach! Below is an itinerary of weekly events along with a suggestion of ways you can contribute to the fun of showering teachers and staff with the appreciation they deserve!
*We were hoping on Wednesday, that families who want to give something extra back to the school, would consider purchasing something off the Recess and School Supply Wish List. Unfortunately, the school wasn’t able to do an inventory and add things to the list in time. If you still want to go the extra mile, please check out your teacher’s classroom wish list or the school librarian, Ms. Chambion’s list, or the counselor’s list, Ms. Sorrell. Thank you everyone for your support of the teachers, staff and school!!
Amazon Wish Lists:
Below are the teacher’s and the school’s Amazon Wish Lists. This is completely optional. If you want to give back something extra, we hope you take a look at the lists below. Links are to classroom wish lists, and “Loves” are their personal favorite shops. We will continue to link names with wish list links as they are shared with us.
