Teacher Appreciation

What is Teacher Appreciation?

The Teacher Appreciation Committee organizes breakfast or lunch every other month for our wonderful teachers and staff.  The Committee relies on families to donate food and drinks for these events. 

Teachers and staff enjoy time together sharing a healthy, delicious meal.


The Committee also coordinates activities during Teacher Appreciation Week in early May.  With the help of volunteers, we honor teachers and staff with colorful door banners and daily activities (which include various meals & special surprises).  A parent volunteer from each class coordinates the banner for their child's classroom door; other volunteers (including parents, scout troops and students), make banners for the staff and program teachers.

How Can I Help?

Donate a specific food item (look for our table at Jaguar Day!), sign up to make a door banner, or receive help requests "as needed" from our email list.  We have many opportunities to help, from making an entree to bringing ice!  Please email us at teacherappreciation@walnutacrespfc.net
