Happy spring everyone! This month's Staff Appreciation lunch will be on Tuesday, April 19th. The theme this month is Spring Greens... salads of all kind!
Please see the sign up list attached and contribute however you can. All items need to be dropped off in the office the day before or the day of by 10AM. We will try to have everything washed and ready for you to pick up after school or the following day. Please remember we have approximately 105 staff members. Your portion should be able to serve 10-12 people. We have plenty of serving utensils so no need to send those.
