March Teacher Appreciation Lunch

Hi Parents,

My name is Jacie Sardilli and I have been put in charge of the March Teacher Appreciation Luncheon. India Hook parents host this event monthly to tell our teachers "Thank You" for the wonderful job they do teaching our children. This month we will be having a baked potato bar for the teachers. We need parent donations to help buy the items needed to stock this potato bar. If you are willing to help any donation would be strongly appreciated. You can send this money in with your child in an envelope labeled "March teacher luncheon" and your teacher can forward it to the luncheon committee. If you would rather donate food items for the bar you can contact me and I can let you know what is still needed. Any donations made are recognized with your name being listed on a card posted during the luncheon. This luncheon is planned for March 26th, so any donations need to be in byFriday, March 22nd. Our teacher's do such a wonderful job and it is important that we let them know we appreciate them. Thanks for your help!
