Sweet Treats and Sweeter Words: October Appreciation Event
This month the Appreciation Committee created an extra special treat for our AMAZING FALA teachers! In addition to sweet treats, they gave sweet words from the students to the staff.
In mid-October, “Top Secret” envelopes were passed around the school containing instructions for the students to write a card for the teacher or staff member named on the envelope, then pass it on to another student. Each envelope contained 5 note cards.
The instructions included a “due date” on which to return the envelope to a member of the FALA Honors Society. Of the 35 envelopes that were sent out, 25 were returned with cards completed. Not perfect, but not bad for an experiment!
On Halloween, we packaged the cards for the staff members and included them alongside brownies and cookies in the break room. We hope the sweet words the students shared were encouraging for the staff and teachers, and that the sweet treats made them happy, too!
