At Carpenter we love our teachers and look forward to Teacher Appreciation Week every year! This is the perfect time for parents and kids to thank their teachers for the hard work they've put in all year. Our teachers take care of our children every day, now let's take care of them! Below is this year's PTA theme with suggestions on what to do each day (if you'd like to participate), but of course we invite parents to show gratitude in any way you wish. And don't forget about our Support Staff Members, such as specials teachers, cafeteria and office staff, and administrators--these folks serve all students every day. To view the list of class assignments for Support Staff Member as noted for Tuesday, visit bit.ly/class-assignments.
The PTA is planning special treats for teachers and staff all week long. If you'd like to help by donating supplies or an hour of your time, please visit our signup: signupgenius.com/go/409094eacae2aa57-teacher2.
