Dinner for our Teachers and Staff

Teacher Conferences 2019 3
Big thanks to the hospitality team for all their work at parent-teacher conferences. As an afternoon pick-me-up, Melissa Shields organized Sonic happy hour drinks, which were enjoyed by 38 teachers and staff. Then for dinner, Erika Wijaya Tan and Melissa Shields arranged an amazing meal of fried chicken, spinach salad, mac and cheese, and potato salad. They bring hard work, organization and fun to all hospitality events and the PTSA appreciated them so much.

The PTSA would like to thank new PTSA members Abby Goldstein, Mark Rodriguez, Megan Benanti, and Mielle Walther for volunteering at the conference night. The PTSA couldn’t have run the spirit wear, membership tables, and dinner clean up without your assistance! THANK YOU!!!

We are asking for your very best baking skills to make a dozen cookies for our teachers to pick and choose from so they can create their own holiday gift box of cookies!

We appreciate all donations…your best homemade recipe is ideal, but store-bought is also a great option! No baking skills? No time? No problem! You can also make a modest donation as well!

Please send a dozen cookies, either with your student to school, or come in and say hello to us as we set up in Room 211 from 8 AM-10 AM on Thursday, December 13, 2018 (the last regular school day before ACPs). Please bring cookies in a disposable container. We have display trays at school.

When you sign up below, please specify what type of cookie you’re bringing–such as chocolate chip, gingerbread, sugar, blossom, cream filled, oatmeal raisin, fig newton, brownies, cake balls, etc! Let’s try to make sure we give teachers a good variety!
