Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week: April 29th – May 3rd

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is fast approaching and we can’t wait to spoil our wonderful Wildcat staff! To view the schedule for the week, click here. To view each staff member’s Favorites List, please visit the Hospitality Page on our website.

It is Wildcat tradition to kick off Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week by decorating the teacher & staff doors throughout the school. We’d love to make sure EVERY door is covered for this special week! Door decorations are hung after school on Friday, April 26th but you can drop prepared decor at office and it will be hung for you.  See Sign Up below for details and to sign up for a door!
