We have just introduced a new preschool staff recognition program we are calling the "LIKE" award, and we would like to extend it to the families to participate in as well. If you have noticed one of our Grace Preschool staff members going above and beyond, and would like to recognize them for it, you may choose to do so with the below "LIKE" award (additional copies available in the preschool office). Simply fill out the recipient information on both sides, and present the left side to the teacher/staff person and the right side to the preschool office. A small drawing will take place monthly to honor one of the recipients.
