Teacher Appreciation Week
In April, we will be celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week. We do
something special for the teachers each day of the week. Agelika Doukides and Amy Kurschner have generously volunteered their time to plan and execute the week. The teachers are so grateful for this week each year and especially the volunteers that make it happen. If you’d like to help plan, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
