Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6th – 10th

Every year we show our wonderful staff how much we appreciate all they do for our children. This year the celebration will take place Monday, May 6 through   Friday, May 10. The Staff Appreciation Committee has many fun events planned to celebrate the staff of Travilah. The committee will need your help to make this an extra special week and show our hard-working, committed teachers AND staff how much we truly appreciate all that they do for our students. You can help by encouraging your student to participate in the optional activities during Travilah’s              Staff Appreciation Week. Questions? Email Andrea Goren or Lauri Noble


Make Monday less Manic!  Bring in a pampering item for teachers AND staff members. (Examples: tea bags, hand lotion, bath bombs)


Treat them sweet Tuesday!  Bring in a sweet treat for teachers AND staff members. (Examples: candy bar, granola bar, piece of fruit)


What might you need Wednesday? Bring in a classroom or office supply.        You can reach out to teachers AND staff members for ideas on what they may need, or visit Travilah’s website to view classroom supply lists.


Thankful for you Thursday!  Have/help your child write notes of appreciation to teachers AND staff members!


Free for all Friday!  Let your child choose how to make teachers AND staff feel special today!
