Staff Appreciation Week Success!

Thank you to everyone who sent in notes of gratitude, goodies for the Teachers' Lounge, flowers on Friday, and donations to the PTA throughout the year to allow us to show our heartfelt appreciation to SCES Staff last week. A big thanks to the PTA board, particularly our Co-President Rick Bacon, Treasurer Laura Fruge, VP of Events Jennifer Meyer, and VP of Communication Brenna Thibault, for organizing the delicious Nando's lunch and serving the staff lunch and breakfast on Thursday and Friday.
