Teacher Appreciation Week was a Hit

Thank you for all the support you showed the Olson teachers and staff last week. From having your child wear their teacher's favorite color, to SO much candy, to handwritten notes, flowers, and other gifts, the Olson staff certainly felt the love! Thank you for teaching your children to show gratitude and appreciation, especially towards their teachers.
