May 6-10 was Teacher Appreciation week, and I again had the privilege of organizing Piñon Elementary’s Teacher & Staff Appreciation Luncheon.
This reminded me how many people at Piñon work together to provide a good educational experience for the children. This includes teachers of preschool through 6th grade, special education, gifted & talented education, English language learners, art, library, PE, music/band, and orchestra; instructional assistants; principal; secretary; clerk; custodial and maintenance workers; counselor; nurses; psychologist; social worker; speech language pathologists; physical and occupational therapists; and technology specialist.
Thank you to ALL of you for ALL that you do for our children.
Thank you, CB Fox and CB Fox’s Pajarito Greenhouse in Pajarito Acres, for again supporting Piñon Elementary’s teachers and staff by helping provide the beautiful blooming pansy plants for the staff gifts by obtaining the pansies, providing the individual pots and soil for the plants, transplanting and caring for the plants until the luncheon, and even delivering the plants to us.
Thank you, Piñon Elementary parents, for making the event possible, and my job easy, by so willingly preparing and providing delicious food and drinks for not only the luncheon but also for the teacher/staff lounge all through the week, donating your time to setup and cleanup, and supplying all the extras we needed.
Some things I heard from teachers and staff members multiple times were: delicious, great, wonderful, and thank you. Good job, Piñon Parents!
