There are only 12 staff members left to adopt!!

Teacher Appreciation Week can’t just be for the teachers…let’s make this a full school Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week. Introducing, Adopt-A-Support-Staff-Member! There is a link below where you can sign up to “adopt” a support staff member. Each support staff member can be adopted only once. Please feel free to adopt as many staff members as you’d like. During Teacher Appreciation Week, May 3-7, feel free to spoil your adopted staff member. You could send kind emails or letters, drop off snacks or small gifts, you can do one thing for the week or one thing each day…really, it’s up to you. All we ask is that you make that staff member feel super appreciated! The staff member that you adopt will only be kept a secret until May 3, so please feel free to let them know that the surprises are from you, your child(ren) or your family.  The sign up will be available through April 29.
