Parents recently showed spectacular support for the Teacher Appreciation Week gift card initiative. The PTSA requested that parents send in $10 gift cards, to be distributed among teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week. The original goal was to gather enough cards to present two to each teacher and staff member, but overwhelming response from parents resulted in a total of six cards for each, including custodial and security staff.
Valenta Williams distributed gift bags with the cards, and reported that the teachers indulged in some upbeat baseball-card trading of cards from various merchants. Several teachers and staff members expressed appreciation for the unexpected gifts, and the impressive support from the MLWGS community.
