Monday May 6 through Friday May 10 is National Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week, and we want to make sure our Belle Sherman staff feels all the love and support that I know our families have for them. Let’s celebrate them as generously as they give of themselves to our kids every day!
We have a bunch of treats and surprises in store for them that week, but there are a couple areas where everyone can help.
On Monday, to kick off the week, look for big yellow papers posted around both buildings – take a moment (kids and families!) to write messages of appreciation for all your favorite Belle Sherman folks. We’ll leave them up all week – find some time to leave some kind words!
Encourage your children to write Thank-You-Notes (or artwork or other expression) to the teachers and staff that work with them. Use the stationery that’s being sent home in backpacks, or whatever you’d like!
Donate Books! A reminder to send in any high-quality, good condition, relatively recent titles so we can create a take-and-enjoy bookshelf for teachers and staff to help themselves. Bring books early in the week please!! Deliver to box by main office, or by Lisa’s desk in the Annex (or drop off anytime in the blue bin on the front porch of 113 Clover Lane) We know you’ve got some at home…bring ’em in!
On Friday May 10 we will be providing a breakfast spread (well, 2 spreads – one for each building’s staff lounge). All other parts of the breakfast will be covered by local donations or PTA funds & folks, but we would love to have some fresh prepared fruit to add to the table. Looking for approximately 5 volunteers to each make one fruit salad or fresh cut fruit platter. Must be delivered to school either EARLY Friday morning May 10th (BEFORE 7:30am), or we can arrange to collect from you on Thursday afternoon or evening. Please email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org or text to 413-281-8018 if you can do this.
Send in some K-cups! Last year we gifted some new Keurig machines for the staff lounges, and we know that a freshly stocked variety of K-cups would be greatly appreciated. Leave in staff lounge in main building and/or Annex anytime next week.
