Teacher Appreciation Week (MPS)

“Thanks for Teaching Our Children
To Spread Their Wings And Fly!”

MPS Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week
Monday, May 5th - Friday, May 9th!

The MPS/MES PTA would like to honor our awesome teachers and staff by giving a special thanks to everyone from our Teachers to Instructional Assistants, Principals, Office Staff and Custodians that make MPS a great place to learn! They say it takes a village to raise a child, and the staff at MPS takes that to heart. Let’s show them all how much they are appreciated!

We have organized a number of activities in which students and their families can show their appreciation. Students are encouraged to participate in the following activities to make this week extra special!  ALL of the various requests for volunteers and/or contributions can be accessed via Sign-Up Genius using the links noted under each activity!

Monday May 5th: Notes of Appreciation, Teacher/Staff Breakfast and Bus Driver Appreciation.

      Teacher/Staff Breakfast will be provided in the teacher’s lounge courtesy of the PTA. Volunteer your time to help with set-up and clean-up!

      “Thank You” to our Bus Drivers & their Aides for transporting our children safely to and from school! PTA will be providing each driver with a “Breakfast Goody Bag”! Volunteers needed to distribute the bags.

      We want to create a “wall of appreciation” that will be on display for the teachers and staff to read. Please have your child express a note of appreciation for any teacher and/or staff member by writing a “Thank You Note”! Return the notes anytime during the week of May 5th. We have a “Butterfly Theme” this year if your child would like to design a TY Note around the theme!

Tuesday May 6th through Thursday May 8th - Grade Level Luncheons:

We will be hosting a luncheon for our teachers and staff on the following days!
Tuesday May 6th – 1st Grade            
     We will need 2 volunteers to assist each day, as well as donations of food, drinks and raffle prizes!


     We will hold drawings during each grade level luncheon and need small donations i.e.: Gift cards (restaurants, book store, coffee shop, movies, etc.), gift baskets, or whatever donation you would like to contribute. Donations can be sent to the front office in advance of TA week - Please clearly mark Teacher Appreciation Attn.: PTA. Sign-ups for donations can be found under the 1st, K/Pre-K/Special Ed/Challenges or 2nd grade luncheon links.

     The PTA purchases an appreciation gift for the teachers & staff – in the past we have purchased a Keurig, a microwave and misc. items for their lounge! This year’s gift will be presented on Friday, May 9th!
