Oak Point Staff Appreciation Week is May 7-11, 2018 and coincides with National Teacher Appreciation Week.  The Oak Point PTO encourages students and families to thank these everyday superheros - their teachers, staff, and administrators - during Staff Appreciation Week.  We have a couple of templates available on our website for students to write a thank you note or draw a picture to their teachers or favorite staff members.  We also have a “fill in the blank” letter for students in younger grades to use to thank their teachers and favorite staff. Want to give your favorite staff member a gift? Take a look at their Favorite Things list.

 

Stay tuned to our Facebook page and Twitter feed to see how the PTO honors our teachers, staff, and administrators during Staff Appreciation Week.
