Next Week is Teacher Appreciation Week!


Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Erin and I will be standing in the parking lot each morning before school with this box to collect any notes of appreciation you might like to write to any of your childrens’ teachers. You can also bring notes and cards in and drop them off any time at our office.

Your words of encouragement mean a great deal to these dedicated professionals who love your kids and who work so hard to help them be successful!
