Staff Appreciation

Need some ideas on what your teachers may like for gifts? We surveyed the teachers and staff and asked them some questions. Hopefully this gives you some jumping off points to help you find that perfect gift to say thank you for all they do.

These are separated by neighborhood. You can find cards for the entire staff on the PTO bulletin boards.
