A few notes from our Amazing PTA


This is such a special week to show our Lead Learners how much we love and appreciate them. The PTA is working hard to provide a fun and safe way to show all our teachers appreciation this week. Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Tuesday is Thankful Tuesday- Students, send a note or picture to your lead learner telling them how they have helped you or something you love about them
  • Favorite Things Friday- surprise your Lead Learner with one of their favorite things (See link below)

Teacher Appreciation Luncheon Volunteers needed!

We have some great lead learners and we want to honor them with a special duty free lunch on Friday, May 7, that means we need your help! Please consider signing up to cover a lead learner's class from 11:30-12:30 so they can enjoy a special duty free lunch!

* All school volunteers must have drivers license scanned by the front office. Please make plans to come by any day before your volunteer shift in order to keep things running smoothly the day of the luncheon!

*Please remember that due to COVID, all guests are asked to wear masks in the building*
