Staff Appreciation Week is THIS WEEK!

It’s the time of the year when we celebrate the teachers, IAs, and staff at our school. They work hard every day, so let’s show them some love! Pick a day or two, or all! A packet with flowers to color, staff list and more came home with your child last week, but you can also find it in the Printable Forms menu on our website.

Monday – Door Decorating

Classroom and staff office doors will be decorated with the flowers attached to this packet. Please color and cut them out and then on Monday morning you can stick them on the doors for your teachers. Allergy free flowers for everyone!
