Teacher Appreciation, Teacher Birthdays, Special Lunches

To show our appreciation for the teachers and staff for all that they do, we celebrate their birthdays.  Join us as we coordinate efforts to make our staff and teachers feel special.

Service to our teachers is not meant to be a hardship. While it is completely up to those donating their time and finances, the average amount spent on birthday treats is between $15 – $30.

Thank you in advance for all you do!
