Happy Friday Cougar Families!
Teacher and Staff Appreciation week is coming up May 8-12 and we are excited to celebrate the service of our teachers and classified staff. Our staff makes everyday investments in our students and the most important thing we can do is take a moment to show our appreciation. Little tokens of appreciation have a big impact and go a long way. Each day of the week we will provide something that shows our appreciation.
We are hosting a luncheon for our teachers and staff on Tuesday, May 9 in front of our school. We will have a modified schedule on Tuesday that will provide a longer lunch so our staff can enjoy their lunch comfortably and with the company of their colleagues. School will still start and end at the same time.
We are dedicating May 11 as Thankful Thursday. As important members of our learning community we encourage you to take part and share a thankful message to a teacher or staff member who has had a positive impact on your student and family. Please use this form to participate in Teacher and Staff Appreciation week’s Thankful Thursday and we will deliver your message to its recipient on May 11.
