Weekly Staff Update

5/2/2016 - 5/6/2016


So many times your job goes without recognition. My goal next week is to honor your hard work, professionalism, and dedication to our students in a manner that is fun and enjoyable. Please pay attention to the emails (before school & in the afternoon) to get the updates on the day's activities and prizes.

Also, please enjoy the many "gifts" throughout the week beginning with an all week JEANS WEEK (THANKS SUE FOR STEALING MY THUNDER!!! LOL). There will be many food gifts next week. We've tried to inform you all in advance so you don't overspend on groceries this weekend!

Enjoy the week and thank you for the wonderful privilege to work with you! You all are truly amazing!
