Teacher Appreciation Week 2016 is May 2nd - 6th. So don't forget to send a note of appreciation to the teachers in your life. A heartfelt, handwritten thank you note goes a long way to sharing the love. Make it even more meaningful by including something specific the teacher has said or done that has made a difference to your child, like offering extra guidance in math, helping your child make friends on the playground, or teaching a science or art module that sparked your child’s interest and passion.
The kindergarten field trip that was originally scheduled for Wednesday, May 4th is rescheduled due to the weather for Monday, May 9th. If there is inclement weather on May 9th the field trip will not be rescheduled and money will be returned.
Thank you for your understanding.
