Let’s Show Our Teachers How THANKFUL We Are!

November is the time of year to pause and give gratitude and we think our teachers and staff deserve so much thanks. All through November we’re expressing our thanks to those working so hard to make remote learning work. Have your child draw a picture, send a note, record a message – anything works – and send it to his/her teachers. You can drop off messages at school or send via email or Seesaw. And feel free to show your thanks as well. Let’s make sure our amazing teachers and staff feel ALL THE LOVE this month!
