Staff Appreciation Week starts Monday!

Staff Appreciation Week is next week and while we have had a terrific response to our requests for volunteers and donations some special days still need help!
Monday, April 30 - Flower Bouquets
Parent helpers are needed between 7:40-8:40am to collect flowers from students and meet in the STEM room (bring scissors). We also need donated vases which can be dropped off at school (see donation box in the office) anytime prior to the event.  We need more volunteers to help collect flowers and arrange them for our staff members!  Sign up here: Staff Appreciation Flowers
Wednesday, May 2 - Staff Appreciation Lunch
This is our big staff appreciation event of the year! The lunch location has been changed from the Library to the STEM ROOM from 1-2pm.  Room parents will help coordinate the table settings and decorations by grade level (look for more information from your room parent).  A few volunteers are still needed!
