Staff Appreciation – by Students
How Students Can Show Appreciation!
All the students at Flo Ro will be decorating and writing notes to their main teachers during art class in preparation for Staff Appreciation Week. We also encourage children to send a note from home to any of their other favorite staff members showing him/her how much they care. We will be collecting these notes and distributing them to all staff members (specials teachers, paras, administration, special education teachers, custodians, lunch staff and speech, reading, OT specialists, etc.)
Please send any notes in an envelope marked “Staff Appreciation Committee” and we will make sure they get delivered! Make sure to write To: and From: on the top of each individual note so we know who they belong to.

All notes must be sent in by Friday March 30th. Please contact Emily Slater at [email protected] with any questions.
