Teacher Appreciation Week brought to you by SWCC

Monday, May 7, 2018 - Friday, May 11, 2018 is Teacher Appreciation week and we want to shower our teachers with some goodies and treats. Every day has a theme, and you can participate as many days as you like, or feel free to bring something of your choice. Participation is optional. We have done a little investigating and asked the teachers to provide us with a list of their favorite things to give you some hints. A list of some of our teacher’s and support staff’s favorite things are being sent with this newsletter.
