STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK
Next week the Elementary Student Council will be holding a Staff Appreciation Week. This is a week to thank the staff for all they do to make our school such a wonderful place. The staff will be treated daily with goodies in the work room and will also get an extra planning time on Friday, April 20th. Any donations of treats, goodies, cards, etc. would be appreciated.
While the teachers are enjoying their extra planning time, we are going to refocus our attention on our anti-bullying efforts. The student council members will help Mrs. Paulsen teach anti-bullying lessons to the students. Students will stand in silent observance for seven seconds for the fact that every seven seconds someone in the United States is bullied. We will then make a pledge to stop bullying in our school and release balloons.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office or Mrs. Paulsen.
