Mon, May 15 11:46am

Dear PGS families,

PGS PTO wants to thank all of you for making Teacher Appreciation Week truly exceptional! Our collective efforts and contributions made this week a remarkable celebration of our incredible educators.

A special appreciation to our wonderful students who went above and beyond to celebrate their teachers. Your gestures of kindness, from treats and messages to donating books brought joy and touched the hearts of our teachers, reminding them why they chose this noble profession.

A big thank you goes out to all parent volunteers who graciously dedicated their time to assist during lunch and recess, allowing our teachers to enjoy their special lunch and enjoy a well-deserved break!  And to the parents who sent in amazing desserts, food, drinks, and supplies for the luncheon, thank you for your generosity!

This week wouldn't have been possible without our very own Jennifer Oligino and Stephanie Close who organized the luncheon for our teachers and staff. Thank you both for all your dedication to the PTO and to PGS! 

 TODAY is the LAST day to purchase your sign for your graduate!
