What is Staff Appreciation?

Our kiddos couldn't learn what they learn nor have the experiences they have without our amazing Grand Ridge Staff! The PTSA has created a Staff Appreciation program so we have ways to say "Thank You" throughout the year to all of our 80+ staff members. 

During the 2018/2019 school year, we have the following events scheduled to take place:

  • September 4th - Welcome Back lunch
  • November 13th - International Potluck for all Grand Ridge staff
  • February 12th - Sweets & Salty Treats
  • May 6th through 10th - Staff Appreciation Week - We're going over the rainbow for our "oz-some" staff! Your room parent will share more information specific to your class. Here's the flyer about the week's activities and the link to a sign-up for staff lunch on Tuesday, May 7. 


What Is Staff Appreciation Week?

During this week (May 6-10) we celebrate our teachers and staff for all they have done for our kids and families. We host either a special treat, lunch or breakfast each day and coordinate with the room parents so the kiddos can do something special for their teachers and specialists during that week. It's our week to spoil and remind each and every Grand Ridge staff member how important and loved they are to us. The kids have a really good time participating in this week as well. You will be hearing more from your Room Parent as we get closer to May!

Meantime, what Can I Do To Help?

Without your help we cannot execute these activities.We know you are all very busy, so we have put together simple ways for you to help like sign-up opportunities before the events.
