Monthly Teacher Appreciation

Mrs. Armel came up with a great suggestion that we should change up the order process and start with the elder grades first for participation and progress downward for each selected month. PTO is in agreement with new order.

The months will be as followed:

October (5TH Grade): Apple Bar

November (4th Grade): Candy Bars – Fun Size

December (3rd Grade): Hot Drinks – K-Cups i.e. Coffee, Apple Cider, Hot Chocolate

February (2nd Grade): Bagels

March (1st Grade): Trail Mix

April (Kindergarten): TBD – Fruit was suggested


Currently everything is play by ear due to COVID.

Mrs. LaVere has suggested PTO be added to DOJO and Remind apps in order to reach out to parents more effectively and therefore possibly generate more participation.

Minutes took place in Data Room from 3:18pm to 4:20pm.
