From the safety of your own home
1 day before, 7 days before
Dear Willow Glen Elementary Community,
 
We want to show our teachers and staff our appreciation for how hard they have worked this year, and especially as they have taken on the challenge of distance learning.  This has been a completely new learning experience for all of us, especially for our teachers who have had to transition from seeing our children face to face everyday to having to communicate through Google Classroom and online video calls.
 
This year, the PTA will be sending a special gift to all Willow Glen Elementary support staff (including front office, nurse, principal, vice principal, librarian, nurse, yard duty, coaches, custodian, etc)  but we are relying on parents and students to show their appreciation to their classroom teachers.
 
Teachers and Staff Appreciation Week is Monday, May 4th through Friday, May 8th.  Here are just a few ideas to celebrate your child's teacher.
 
  • Monday: Have your student draw or paint a picture, take a photograph of it, and email it or post it in your Google Classroom.
  • Wednesday: Have your student write a letter to your teacher expressing their appreciation and what they enjoy about being in their class. 
  • Friday: Send an electronic gift card to your student's teacher as a HUGE thank you for all they do for your child!
 
If you have any questions, please contact Maureen Wenski at mmwenski@gmail.com or Marlene Wilhelm at mwilhelm@scusd.net
 
With gratitude, 
Maureen & Marlene
 
P.S. It has been a pleasure working with the student body and families over the last few years on Staff Appreciation Week. We hope the tradition continues on. Wishing you all the best of health & hoping your spirts remain high.
