SCHOOL NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS   



TEACHER APPRECIATION: ALL  
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8-12, 2017. We can’t wait to #ThankATeacher with you!  This year’s theme is “Teachers Deliver.” And they do! Teachers deliver so much to our students—inspiration, motivation and, ultimately, their futures. From May 8-12, 2017, we would like to celebrate teachers and deliver our thanks and gratitude to them.  Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.   Join us during NationalPTA Teacher Appreciation Week to #ThankATeacher for all that they deliver to our nation’s children.  This is not the time for large gifts, but rather small thank you's to ensure teachers know the impact they have had and the appreciation we have for them.
