It’s Teacher Appreciation Week!

Posted on

We are so lucky here at Howard to have such an amazing and caring staff!  This week we have the opportunity to show them how much we appreciate all of the love and care and time they put into teaching and supporting our children.

The PTA kicked off Teacher Appreciation Week with a special breakfast.



On Wednesday we will have our annual Flower Day.  Please have your child bring 1-2 flowers (either from home or the store) in the morning.  A parent volunteer will collect the flowers before your child enters the classroom and will arrange them into a bouquet for the teacher.

We are still in need of Field Day volunteers (this Friday).  Please use this Sign-up Genius link: Field Day Volunteers
