Thank you, PTSA, for all of the special treatment this week. The staff loved the Lazy Acres lunch on Tuesday and Fresh Bros. pizza on Thursday, the pedicures and car washes and popcorn and bundt cakes and water bottles, and flower petals, and…and….and….
You made everyone feel very appreciated and we are grateful to work with such amazing parents!!
