Teacher Appreciation (Usually the second week in May): Decorate teacher’s door, coordinate with other parents to come up with something special for your teacher, help remind parents about the week and the daily activities. Coordinate with the parent volunteer over teacher appreciation week.

Field day (usually the day before the last day of school): Each classroom will be asked to provide 2-3 volunteers to help with field day activities, you will stay with your class as they rotate through fun events.

We encourage you to enlist other parents for their support!
