Teacher Appreciation Week: May 1-5


 
Our faculty and staff at LFP truly deliver and the week of May 1 through 5 we are celebrating them. Please join us in the festivities:
 
All week long: Write and deliver special notes to your favorite staff members. Look for special mailboxes near all the classrooms and resource rooms. Extra stationery and thank you notes will be available outside the PTA office or make your own at home!
 
Wednesday: A fabulous potluck treat. Interested in helping? Want to know what we have in store?  Log in to perfectpotluck.com (coordinator last name: appreciation, password: staff)
 
Friday: The Great Gift Card Give Away! A fun LFP tradition where each teacher gets a great gift card. We have not yet reached our goal, so if you have any spares at home please send them our way!
 

The Lake Forest Park Elementary Parent-Teacher Association (LFP PTA) supports our teachers, families and school through community-building events, classes, services and more. Our organization is part of the National PTA, Washington State PTA and the Shoreline PTA Council.
