Staff Appreciation

May 7th to May 11th is Staff Appreciation Week. The plan is to inundate Hedenkamp teachers and staff with thanks and appreciation for all they do.

Note: participation is completely optional and students are not required to bring gifts.

Below is a suggested list of daily activities for the week to show appreciation for our school Staff.

  • Monday: Merci! Shower your teacher and/or staff member with flowers.
  • Tuesday: Xiè Xiè! Write your teacher and/or staff member a note telling them how lucky we are to have them!
  • Wednesday: Takk! Bring a school supply item for your teacher and/or staff member thanking them for helping our kids be prepared.
  • Thursday:  Gracias! Help create a fruit basket by bringing a piece of fruit for your teacher and/or staff member.
  • Friday: Grazie! Bring sweet treats for your teacher and/or staff member.

PTA also has special treats planned daily for Hedenkamp teachers and staff with an appreciation luncheon to end the week. Join us in making this a special week for our fabulous teachers and staff.
