PTA Teacher Appreciation Program

At the last PTA meeting, we discussed all the wonderful opportunities the teachers are providing for our kids.  Playing on the basketball team, singing in the choir, playing in band, painting a mural, participating in the school play, joining chess club or one of the other many clubs - these activities would not be possible without the extra time and effort our teachers put in.
