Staff Appreciation Week, May 6
– May 10
Staff appreciation is coming up soon. It is a great opportunity to thank our teachers and staff for all that they do. Keep an eye on “This Week @ Gates” and the Paul P. Gates School Parent Connection Facebook page, and the
in the coming weeks, for more information on our plans and signups.
Please note that each day has an individual signup for supplies and help. Make sure to check them all out if you think you can donate more than one item.
Let’s work together to make it a fantastic week of celebration!
On Monday, May 6
we would like to start Staff Appreciation Week off right with breakfast for the staff. Click on the link below to donate food and supplies. All items should be dropped off in the Teacher’s Lounge by 7:30am so that we can set up the breakfast by 8am.
TUESDAY: Convenience Store
On Tuesday, May 7
we would like to set up a “convenience store” so that teachers can restock supplies, rainy-day games and snacks in their classrooms. All supplies should be new. Any snacks should be packages of individually packaged snacks. Items can be dropped off in the school office beginning April 29
and must be dropped off by 7:30am on May 7
. To make it easier, the signup includes a link to an Amazon wishlist. Items can be shipped directly to the school!
WEDNESDAY: Students Show Their Appreciation and Raffle
When we asked the staff what they liked most they answered the pictures and notes from students. Have your child bring in a picture or note, this day, telling a member of the staff how much they appreciate them. Your child doesn’t want to write a note – that’s OK. Have them wear their teacher’s favorite color. Wednesday we will also raffle prizes that have been donated. Want to donate something but have no ideas? Check out the sign up below. Please contact Jennifer Smith about pick up of raffle items. Our goal is to have a raffle item for every member of the staff.
THURSDAY: PTO Shows Their Appreciation (June 13th)
The PTO will be catering lunch for the staff during building-bassed learning on June 13th. No donations needed.
Can you volunteer to help with setup or clean up? Contact Jennifer Smith directly.
FRIDAY: Something Sweet to End the Week
Who doesn’t enjoy a good cup of coffee, cookies or treats? If you would like to make or purchase something for the staff, please consider signing up below. Items should be brought to the Teacher’s Lounge by 8am on Friday.
