Piñon luncheon a success

-A A +A

May 6-10 was Teacher Appreciation week, and I again had the privilege of organizing Piñon Elementary’s Teacher and Staff Appreciation Luncheon.
This reminded me how many people at Piñon work together to provide a good educational experience for the children.
This includes teachers of preschool through sixth grade, special education, gifted and talented education, English language learners, art, library, Physical Education, music/band and orchestra; instructional assistants; principal; secretary; clerk; custodial and maintenance workers; counselor; nurses; psychologist; social worker; speech language pathologists; physical and occupational therapists and technology specialists.
Thank you to all of you for all that you do for our children.
Thank you, CB Fox and CB Fox’s Pajarito Greenhouse in Pajarito Acres, for again supporting Piñon Elementary’s teachers and staff by helping provide the beautiful blooming pansy plants for the staff gifts by obtaining the pansies, providing the individual pots and soil for the plants, transplanting and caring for the plants until the luncheon and even delivering the plants to us.
Thank you, Piñon Elementary parents, for making the event possible, and my job easy, by so willingly preparing and providing delicious food and drinks for not only the luncheon, but also for the teacher/staff lounge all through the week, donating your time to setup and cleanup, and supplying all the extras we needed. Some things I heard from teachers and staff members multiple times were: delicious, great, wonderful, and thank you. Good job, Piñon Parents!
