Visit the Staff Appreciation Station at May Day!

Staff Appreciation Week is next week, May 8-12…and at this year’s May Day Festival, you’ll have a chance to help kick off the fun! Just stop by the Staff Appreciation Station and write a note of gratitude and encouragement for our excellent SJLES staff! You can thank homeroom teachers, related arts teachers, paraeducators, custodians, health room staff, front office staff…ANY teacher or staff member you can think of who has made a difference for your students! And if you’d like to do even more for our teachers, check out this Signup Genius to donate items for next week!
