Students write thank you notes for Teacher Appreciation Week

Students were invited to write notes of gratitude to teachers and staff in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 5-11, 2019). The note-writing drive was the brainchild of science teacher Sangeet Srikanth. PTSO Teacher Appreciation co-chair Maria Sullivan worked with Graphic Communications to produce postcards, and students staffed a note-writing table during lunch blocks on Wednesday and Thursday. About 400 notes arrived in teacher mailboxes on Friday.
