Appreciation Week at Fox Mill Elementary is quickly approaching. It is less than a month away and takes place May 7–11, 2018. Our goal is to have a week of festivities (such as a catered breakfast) that are sure to make our teachers and staff feel valued and appreciated.

We received feedback from many parents that, in the past, this week has been very overwhelming. In an effort to simplify the week, maximize our appreciation, and make the week more inclusive of ALL of our wonderful teachers and staff, we decided this year, to pool money and celebrate everyone equally. This way, every Staff Member can be recognized in the form of food and/or gifts. Margie McCoy has offered to handle the money collection and will head a committee to plan this wonderful week for the Fox Mill Staff. She has worked closely with the PTA and is a Fox Mill parent with a child in the first grade as well as being a former teacher. Since the PTA is not allowed to directly take funds that are not approved through the PTA budget, Margie volunteered to help us out! To further streamline Appreciation Week, we are doing away with the daily theme that we have done in the past. Instead, we will show our appreciation daily using a weekly theme based on spreading kindness, which was our overall goal for this school year. While we still want our teachers to feel appreciated we also want to make sure not to overwhelm parents.

Please use the link below to contribute.  Also, be on the lookout for a Sign-Up Genius link to sign up as part of a small committee to decide how we will allocate the money. The Sign-Up Genius will be circulated by your room parent. If you’re interested in being involved, please let us know!

Suggested donation is $15 per student and is completely optional. Please have donations in by April 25th.
