Designers, can you believe it’s already May!? We have less than 6 weeks remaining in our 2016-2017 school year.

Teacher Appreciation Week

This week (May 1-5) is Teacher Appreciation Week! Many of you may have already written a thoughtful note (or a few!) for your teachers in advisory.  If not, we encourage you to do so this week.  Your notes of appreciation mean so much to our staff who care so much and work so hard to support students in their ongoing growth and success.

Parents, would you like a way to show your gratitude for staff but aren’t sure how? You can always drop off a note of appreciation, or you can donate Breakfast Items for our staff throughout the week in our front office!   If you are interested, please sign up at the link below…
