Teacher Appreciation Luncheon- May 9th, 2019

We are SO CLOSE to our goal of $800.00, thank you to all of you who donated. Also, a big thank you to those of you who signed up to come help cover recess and lunch for our teachers. We have a few more spots in different lunch times. Thank you for all your support!

In recognition of Teacher Appreciation Week in May, we want to provide a luncheon in honor of our teachers and staff. They eat with their students each day and don’t often have quality time to just spend lunch together as a team. We are asking for your support by helping us supervise their recess and lunch as well as any monetary donations that can be made for a catered lunch. We are in need of about $800.00 to have a fancy luncheon catered by Zappone’s Italian Bistro and Catering ( We will have another staff member or administrator in the lunch room when our parent volunteers are there supervising. This will provide our teachers quality time together and acts of service which is what they do for our students each day!

Menu for our amazing Teachers and Staff
House Mixed Green Salad
Penne Alfredo with Chicken
Spicy Eggplant Penne with fresh basil and marinara (vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free)
Homemade Bread (vegan, vegetarian, dairy free)
Assorted Mini desserts
