Our wonderful PTO officers headed up the luncheon which was complete with tablecloths, placemats, and even fresh flowers which were later planted in front of the school.
Everyone was able to enjoy this hour of fellowship because of many volunteers who agreed to watch the students during this time.
Before leaving, each employee received a personalized canvas bag filled with goodies. Thank you PTO for remembering the hard work teachers and staff do every day. This was a very nice way to show your appreciation and we THANK YOU!

Teachers have many tasks to complete in May and one very important one is choosing a Good Citizen of the Year. Good Citizens are selected monthly and in May an overall winner is selected from each classroom. This year's Good Citizens received a meal, compliments of ARBY's. We appreciate the support from the community to make this happen!The Good Citizen Program has been in place for many years and has helped the school recognize students who are a joy to teach and have in the classroom. Even when a student struggles academically, he/she can strive for the title of GOOD CITIZEN.
Ms. Joann Deese, our school counselor supervises this program and we applaud her efforts!
I wonder who next year's Good Citizens will be?
