TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK MAY 2nd-6th


We want to thank our teachers for all they do for the students at Edgemont!  Join in the celebration by participating in the events below:

Monday: What is your teacher’s superpower?  Write it on a star (provided at the school) and add it to their door poster! (We will have a bag of paper star and a “cape” on your door

Tuesday: Be your teacher’s sidekick and wear their favorite color!

Wednesday: Our teachers and staff are super sweet! Write a note thanking someone on the Edgemont staff and add it to our banner. The banner will be just outside the break room.

Thursday: Help supercharge your teacher’s classroom and bring in a classroom supply! (optional)

Friday: Have your parents write a thank you note to your teacher. We will have a special paper to write your own thank you note for your teacher during class time.
