Teacher Appreciation Week
May 6-10 is Teacher Appreciation Week! 

Show our teachers and school staff some extra love, and help them feel special.

Starting Monday, there will be a board in the lobby where students and parents can post messages of thanks to all of our wonderful 282 teachers and staff.

On Wednesday, May 8, the PTO will host a teacher appreciation breakfast at 8 AM in the teachers’ lounge. WE NEED DONATED ITEMS FOR THE BREAKFAST! If you would like to donate food, beverages, or decorations please leave them in the PTO office (room 117) by 5:45PM on May 7 or bring them to the teachers lounge at 7:45AM on May 8. If you can volunteer to help set up at 7:45AM on May 8, please email us by responding to this message. 

Teacher Gifts: You are welcome to do your own classroom celebration for your teacher but just remember the regulations for gifting money to teachers. See LINK HERE. In short, you can give a personal gift of modest value or do a classroom gift but ALL parents/students must sign the card even if they don't contribute.

School Suggested Ways to Celebrate the Week:
Monday - Show your teacher how they've help you bloom. Bring a flower.
Tuesday -Teachers are noteworthy. Give your teacher a note thanking them for what they have done for you.
Wednesday - Wear your teacher(s) favorite color.
