Thank you so much for the fun surprises during Teacher Appreciation Week last week! It was a very nice pick me up to a busy week preparing for the Cluster Showcase. Mrs. Hira decorated our door for me and the PTO sponsored a salad luncheon on Wednesday. It's always a treat not to have to pack your lunch AND get to eat with your teammates! The class book the learners made was precious ... from their recollections of what I say all the time, to their sweet pictures. I also appreciate the treats and Diet Cokes, bath products and gift cards. I've already treated myself to a magazine at Walmart this weekend and coffee while I graded at Starbucks thanks to your generosity!
