Teacher Appreciation Week

thank-teacherTeacher Appreciation Week is May 1-5

A fun week has been planned to honor and thank our great teachers at WG, but we need your help on the finishing touches!  Here’s how:

Sunday, April 30th at 5:00 pm, Bring your kids and your sidewalk chalk… we’re going to decorate!  The plan is to SURPRISE our teachers with fun messages and pictures as they come to work on Monday morning.  Lindsay Alertsen and Jeri Wenzel will be at the ELC and Elementary to meet you and kick start the fun!

Friday, May 5th is FAN MAIL day!! For another SURPRISE, let’s bury our teachers in thank you notes and pictures!  Help your kids make something special at home, and you can either send this homemade treasure on Friday or contact the volunteer parent on this Signup Genius to get your note delivered to the classroom.  If you want to organize your child’s classroom effort, please sign up if it’s not already covered by someone.  Also, let’s not forget the specials teachers, Title/ELP/Tech, SPED and others who invest in our students!
