The Green Oaks Staff Appreciation Committee provides our staff with luncheons, treats, and gifts on their birthdays. The Staff Appreciation Committee is requesting help from each family through donations of money and/or food. The suggested donation is $20, but any amount will be appreciated. Please send your cash or check (payable to Green Oaks School) to the office, in an envelope marked Teacher Appreciation as soon as possible. There will be a planning meeting for the Staff Appreciation Committee tomorrow, Tuesday, September 22 at 2:30 pm in the GOS library. If you would like to help in any way please attend this meeting. If you are unavailable at that time, but would still like to help, email Terri Boyd at email@example.com or call her at 214-738-8568.
