Everyday Unsung Heroes
There are all types of hero’s that are recognized by society. Sports heroes and celebrity heroes are recognized for the talent they have and maybe for the values or organizations they work with. We have our service organization heroes that put their life on the line every day to protect our freedom and livelihood. Your children may have a comic book and/or cartoon hero that they dress up as and pretend to be them while they play.
March 10th -14th is Classified Employees Week. Our classified employees are our unsung heroes in the schools. Classified staff include: secretaries, janitors, bus drivers, maintenance, kitchen staff, classroom para-professionals, IT and speech assistants. These people really keep the schools and district running smoothly.
If you know someone working in any school in a classified position, please take a minute to thank them for their hard work. Without them the school day would be a little tougher to get through.
Our other unsung heroes are the members of the PTG – yes that’s you parents. Our PTG group works really hard trying to bring things to our school that will support our kids. The PTG is currently doing a fundraiser selling chocolate. Know that any purchase that is made supports your kids.
I hope you like pizza too (I mean who doesn’t, right?). March 20th is a PTG Shakey’s Pizza night from 3-9. A percentage of the sales will be donated to our PTG. March 24th-28th is Papa John’s pizza week. A percentage of any purchase made that week will be donated to our PTG.
Thank you for your support.
See you in the halls,
