Teachers and staff enjoyed a homey Italian buffet with "outdoor" seating in the main lobby during the PTSO's annual Teacher Appreciation dinner on November 29. The morale-boosting event was masterminded by Teacher Appreciation co-chairs Jordana Alford, Stacy Schwartz, and Maria Sullivan. Attendees had the option to share a quick meal with colleagues or to take delicious items back to their rooms for parent conferences.
Special thanks to Jordana, Stacy, and Maria and to all the parents/guardians who cooked, shopped, donated, set up, served, and cleaned up in order to make this special meal happen. Please excuse any omissions from the following list:
