Last week the PTA sponsored Teacher Appreciation Week and, wow, did the teachers get spoiled! The theme this year was a pirate theme. Teachers had signs outside of their doors that were decorated by room parents. There was a waffle bar breakfast that kicked the week off on Monday morning. On Tuesday, students dressed up as pirates and watched a pirate relay race with the teachers from their own grade levels. Teacher treats included yummy cupcakes, a bag full of “treasures” from under the sea, and a delicious pirate feast for lunch on Friday. We appreciate our amazing PTA committee: Angie Warner, Kara Kilpatrick, Lindsay Downey and all the PTA Board members that volunteered many hours to make this such a special week!
