Staff Appreciation week is coming May  6-10. In respect to allergies, we have decided to make gift baskets for the teachers instead of bouquets. So, instead of asking you all to bring flowers to school one day during that week, we are asking that you bring items on this teacher requested list to Staff Appreciation Chair Stacy Burlin’s house by May 3.
Sharpened pencils
Mechanical pencils (for the teacher, not students)
Uniball vision elite pens (for the teacher, not students)
Colorful 3 x 3 sticky notes
Assortment of teas
Glue sticks
Gift cards to book stores, office supply stores, craft stores, Starbucks, etc.
Disinfectant wipes
White board markers – in many different, fun colors
Crayola colored pencils
Fine point black sharpies
Please label which teacher your items are for. We will assemble the baskets. Thank you for showing the staff some love!

We can still use some volunteers for our Staff Appreciation week. I hope you will consider joining us on one of the days below. Time commitment is extremely minimal – usually less than two hours!
