Hi Franklin Families,
Teacher Appreciation Week is next week from May 2nd - May 6th!! We need all of the students to help us on WEDNESDAY, MAY 4th!! Students at Franklin will be creating a giant, colorful flower filled with all of the reasons their teachers are terrific! Instructions: 1) Students should be receiving a copy of the petal in their folders this week! We've also attached a copy of the PDF! 2) Write a reason why your teacher is terrific on the empty petal. 3) Color the petal and print it out. 4) Bring the petal with you "in hand" on WEDNESDAY, MAY 4TH, and drop it off OUTSIDE in front of the school steps with PTO volunteers anytime between 8:00AM - 8:20AM! Look for them holding a big box that you can drop your decorated petal into!
Here is what the finished flower looked like from last year, and we also took photos of each petal so that teachers could easily read all of the amazing messages: https://www.franklinpto.org/post/our-collective-franklin-flower
In addition, we have a lot of fun things planned for our wonderful teachers next week! We just need a few VOLUNTEERS to help us out with set-up, delivering flowers, and a few people to deliver some coffee - please sign up below if you can! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080E4DADAC2AA5FA7-teacher Here is the Teacher Appreciation Week schedule: Monday, May 2nd - We picked the best! A variety of fresh fruit, yogurt, and granola bars will be available in the staff lounge in the morning.
Tuesday, May 3rd - You make us bloom! Classroom teachers will be receiving "blooming" flowers or plants! This is being coordinated by each classroom's room parent. If you haven't heard from your room parent yet, they may have had leftover funds from the holidays to purchase these. Please check in with your room parent if you have any questions! The PTO will also be purchasing flowers for non-classroom staff!
Wednesday, May 4th - Creation of a giant colorful flower from student decorated petals! We can't wait to see all of the students' decorated petals - hand in between 8:00am - 8:20am outside of school!
Thursday, May 5th - We would be "muffin" without you! In the morning, Principal Chitty will be visiting each classroom with a breakfast cart filled with a variety of muffins, hot Starbucks & Dunkin' Donuts coffee, and orange juice!
Friday, May 6th - Thanks for making our kids smart cookies! A variety of individually packaged cookies will be available in the staff lounge in the morning.
If you feel like you want to send something else in to say Thank You to your teachers for this special week, please feel free to do so!! Also, we typically have a staff luncheon this week, but it will be the following week on Wednesday, May 11th. Stay tuned for details! Let us know if you have any questions!
