Teacher Wishlists

PTO has updated your teachers favorites on the websites and in doing so we asked teachers if there is anything else they needed for their classroom. We felt this is a good opportunity for those who want to donate or get rid of items. If you are unsure of who the teacher is you can leave the donation at the front office. Thanks!!

Staff Appreciation


We would like to include the parents and students to help make this a special week. You could consider writing a note of appreciation to your classroom teacher or other staff members. Other things that help in student participation is wearing the suggested dress up items mentioned below, like their teacher’s favorite color. A great way to say thanks to your teacher would be to bring their favorite snack, drink, or small gift card one day during appreciation week.

Monday: Wear your teacher’s favorite color
Tuesday: Boys wear Mr. Hoegh’s favorite color – orange
Girls wear Mrs. Frye’s favorite color – yellow
