A big thank you to Amy and the teachers at Shelton School who raised funds among themselves and gifted our teachers with Starbucks cards and breakfast. It was really teachers showing appreciation to teachers. Thank you to Catherine Leblanc and CAR for providing lunch, Church, to our PTA, parents and the community for showing appreciation to our most deserving staff.
