Good Afternoon Caregivers and Students:
We celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week this week. We had raffles for Amazon gift cards and Red Sox tickets to show our gratitude for teacher professionalism, hard work, and commitment to our students and learning community. Our amazing PTO went all out to let our teachers know how much they are appreciated with coffee, donuts, lunch, and a visit from the Cookie Monstah food truck. They also gave over $1400 in gift cards that were raffled off. We cannot thank enough the PTO and families who coordinated this Appreciation week! Our teachers work tirelessly to make it happen for the kids every day, and it is great to take a week to celebrate them!

The EVS survey was sent out last week to all community members. This survey will help frame the work we will be doing over the next five years. The survey will be open until May 20th and it is essential that we receive a good response rate as well as productive feedback. Thank you for completing it if you have already done so!
