A Comet Community Celebration of Kellogg’s Teachers/Staff!

(repeat)

Spring is just around the corner and so is an opportunity to celebrate the hard-working, dedicated Kellogg teachers and staff! During the first week of May, join with others in our Comet Community of students, parents, and caregivers to create an “out of this world” week for our wonderful Comet teachers and staff!

There will be opportunities of all types (helping hands, artistic projects, and donation of goods) for all of us to join together to make this a very special celebration in early May. There will be gift card Bingo, popcorn and treat day, and even a special Friday raffle with prizes, among other special plans in the works. Our goal is to provide a week full of special experiences for all 130 Comet teachers and staff members.

A Sign Up Genius link will be sent out to you following Spring break via the Comet Connection, which will list opportunities for our Comet Community to participate in Appreciation Week, as well as the link being posted on Kellogg’s Facebook page. We will have all of April to collect your donations of appreciation items and to find helping hands to assist with tasks during this special week in May. Please join in this celebration and know that any gift you are able to contribute (whether it is a donation of requested items or helping hands) is appreciated and will make this a wonderful week for the Kellogg teachers and staff.

Be on the lookout for the Sign Up Genius link in early April (let’s “make it rain” with sign ups)!
