zeitgeistMAY 20: Zeitgeist Miraloma Teacher Appreciation Day
Parents, staff, teachers! Come enjoy a burger and beer at Zeitgeist o n Friday, May 20th at 3:30 pm  to celebrate our amazing teachers!  
We'll also celebrate Mr. Bass and send him off with a big thank you.

Through the last three years of helping in the classroom I have come to realize the amount of work that our teachers give to us and our children and wanted to organize something to celebrate them. 
I have teamed up with our PTA to make this event happen and cover the costs for the teachers. Anyone who wants to come hang out and celebrate these amazing teachers is welcome to do so, the more the merrier!!
Thank you and see you there...
