It's Staff Appreciation week February 3-7! We are celebrating our wonderful teachers and staff. Our staff works so incredibly hard each and every day, we would like to take the time to show our appreciation and gratitude to them. This will be a week of special events and gifts for our 70 staff members. We rely on your help to make this week amazing. We are currently collecting gift cards, gift certificates and small gifts for our raffle. If you have anything to donate please leave small items in the front office addressed to Cady Farris or reach out to her via email (email@example.com).
We are also going to be reaching out for volunteers that week to help with set up and take down. More details to come as we solidify the schedule.
Thank you all!
