Item Newsletter, Issue #15
Thank you to all of our families who made a special effort to recognize our teachers and staff this week! Our Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week committee did an incredible job providing daily treats and surprises that lifted everyone's spirits! The students wrote special notes of appreciation on grams that were then attached to doors throughout the school. Our teachers and staff truly go above and beyond in making such a special school environment for our children; thank you for showering them with appreciation!

We hope that everyone enjoys their Spring Break and is ready for more fun school traditions upon our return!
