Teacher Appreciation – We hope you are well during this challenging time! Although school is not in session the way we imagined, we absolutely want to celebrate our amazing teachers and staff next week during teacher appreciation week! We would like to collect cards/notes from the students and families. Cards can be given to specific teachers or staff members in general. Please write the teacher/staff member’s name on the card or envelope if you would like it to go to someone in particular. Bins will be located on two porches (General cards can be dropped at either location): 
  • Grades K-3 can drop any cards off to: Jen Meggos 4617 Saratoga Ave.
  • Grades 4-6 can drop cards off to: Stephanie Vroman 4929 Montgomery Ave.

All cards need to be dropped off by Sunday, May 3rd and the PTA will bring them to the teachers.  Thank you so much for helping us show our incredible teachers and staff our appreciation!
