  • Teacher Appreciation Week (April 19-23, 2021)

    Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up, April 19-23 and we need your help to make this a week to remember for our amazing staff! 

    Weekend/Monday, April 19 - Decoration Day!
    Let’s welcome the teachers back from Spring Break with flair! Let our teachers SEE just how much we love & appreciate them by coming out to the MES@Inman campus the weekend before and using sidewalk chalk to decorate the outdoor hardscape AND/OR by having your kiddos make a sign and drop it off in the bin by the front door by Saturday 4/17. . We’ll decorate and set up a celebration to cheer them on bright & early Monday morning! Our Teleworking staff will get fun virtual greetings!
     
    Tuesday, April 20: Appreciation Videos
    Let's tell our MES teachers and staff just how much we love them! Please upload a video message from your student(s) thanking our hardworking teachers and staff - it is really quick and super easy! Directions included in the links. Not sure what to say? Check out these appreciation prompts (attached)! Your child(ren) can make up to three videos: one for their grade level teachers/delivery teachers/paraprofessionals, one for Leadership/Staff Members, and one for Specials Teachers/Student Services. All videos due April 16.

     

    Wednesday, April 21 - Take a moment to consider how fortunate we all are to have amazing teachers providing live, synchronous instruction every other day AND doing their best to make Wednesdays productive for all. 
     
    Thursday, April 22 - Gift card-palooza day!. Please participate in a SCHOOL-WIDE gift card distribution.  We've got a special plan for making sure that all teachers get a treat and to make it work, we need parents to (A) send in gift cards OR (B) contribute money via the PTA store for the PTA to purchase gift cards.  The old standbys, Amazon, Target, and Visa are always welcome, but the next time you're at your favorite spot, think about snagging a gift card for $10, $20, or even $50 or more and treat a lucky someone to a coffee run, lunch, special, manicure date, taco night or whatever you think they'd love - especially once Covid precautions loosen!  This effort is undertaken on a school-wide basis instead of classs by class because of changes to teacher assignments and as a way to also recognize those MES staffers without a homeroom.  To contribute to the gift card fund visit our MES PTA square store .  If you'd like to drop off a gift card, please drop off at the mailbox on the front porch of 39 The Prado before Monday, April 19th with 'MES' on the envelope.   
     

    Friday, April 23 - Food truck Friday! Your PTA dollars will provide a food truck to feed our in-person staff and food-delivery gift cards for our teleworking staff to send them home on Friday with full bellies and hearts.
