This week is Staff Appreciation Week! We are so fortunate at Palmer to have hard working students, supportive parents, and such a dedicated staff. Our staff puts in long hours working to provide our students with the best lessons possible so every child may reach his or her full potential. Our mission statement is simple: Together, We Learn! We are all life-long learners, and the lessons---both academic and character building---that our staff provides every day will create the best foundation possible for every child! I feel very fortunate to work with such hard-working, caring staff members every day! In honor of Staff Appreciation Week, our wonderful PTA has created some amazing activities to recognize our staff. Here is a message from our PTA:
Thanks for helping to appreciate our staff this week! Below is a reminder of some of our events planned:
Monday: Today is the Pot Luck Lunch. If you are bringing something in, please bring it to the staff room by 11 AM. Thank you!!
Tuesday: Students can bring in a note, drawing, letter, etc., for any staff member they wish: specials teachers, reading teachers, and office staff as well as their classroom teachers! They can hand them out during the day!
Wednesday: Students can bring in a small gifts if they wish. Something handmade or decorated is always appreciated! They can give them to the staff members during the day on Wednesday.
Thursday: Students can bring in their foam star decorated however they wish. Students can bring these in any day this week and drop them off in the box in the main lobby. These will be used to decorate the staff room on Thursday.
Friday: Special treats will be available in the VIP (Staff) Lounge!
Thanks again for all your work at home. We love reminding our staff how much the kids appreciate them and all their hard work!
Thanks to the PTA for providing this special week and special activities for our special staff!
