Teacher Appreciation Week

at JCFA-East -- Shhh...It's a Secret!

May 2 - May 6

Teacher appreciation week is coming up! We've started the planning process and this year's theme is Superheros! Our teachers DO NOT know what we are planning, so please KEEP THIS INFORMATION CONFIDENTIAL! I'll be messaging students through Edgenuity in the next few weeks to get their assistance - please remind them to keep the info confidential as well!!!

I'll be working with a group of students to design decorations and will have themed days throughout the week. Read on below to see what's happening that week and let me know if you'd like to help us out! As usual, the best help we can receive are your words of thanks or appreciation. If you have a specific faculty and/or staff member that you'd like to thank, please email me at natalie.istre@jcfa.co with your comments and I'll make sure they are delivered by the end of the week.

Monday, May 2nd - Superhero Breakfast

We'll welcome our teachers to our decorated space and with a superhero breakfast! Parents are welcome to join us!

I'll be working with students the week of 4/18 to make the decorations/props necessary for the week of 5/2. We'll have pixelated superheros made with post-its and a photo-booth backdrop complete with a prop box on the first floor. Students will come up with door decorations for each classroom on the second floor. If you have a creative side, we'd love to have your help during afternoon banking 4/18, 4/19, or 4/20.

Tuesday, May 3rd - Superhero Snack Break

Teachers will be treated to a Superhero Snack Break during banking. We'll have (mostly) healthy treats to help get them through the day!

Wednesday, May 4th - Superhero Recharge

We'll offer rest and relaxation to all of our hard working super-teachers during banking. I'm working with Ms. Saputo now to arrange for meditation or yoga starting at 1pm. Let me know if you know anyone who could offer to help our teachers recharge for the remainder of the week!

Thursday, May 5th - Superhero Sidekick Service

Here's where I could really use some help! In the morning, we'll have coffee/water/snack service directly to teachers' classrooms! If you'd like to donate your time or your beverages, please contact me. In the afternoon, I plan to ask a small group of students to volunteer to organize and clean classrooms during banking!

Friday, May 6th - Superhero Awards Ceremony

We'll host our teachers to a one of a kind superhero themed awards ceremony at the end of the day. Students will nominate students for awards, which will be presented at the ceremony. We'll have light food and beverages to celebrate the end of our teacher appreciation week. Please join us if you can! I anticipate the festivities will start around 12:15pm!
