May 3 – 9 marks Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. We would like your help in sending our Teachers and Staff a digital kudos board to let them know how amazing they are and why we appreciate them so much! This is a fun and personal way to show our appreciation. You can add pictures (your own or stock), fun gifs. Please personalize it and add your kiddos first name so Teachers know who is sending the message. The deadline for input is the 2nd of May.
The alternate date for this event is 2 May from 1-4. We are hoping the rain will stay away! We will update the website the night before by 9pm. If you would like to help out with this event—we would love to have you. See attached link for volunteer opportunities! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C4AABA729A6FDC61-mclane
