The staff gifts for Thursday
The raffle prize for Thursday was Summertime Fun. It included sunscreen, a tumbler cup that we added bright summer-colored polka dots to and two gift certificates to the Northfield Creamie.
Friday was the teacher luncheon and the parents at NES did not disappoint. There was so much food I imagine they are still eating it today. One mom brought a 30 inch huge sandwich which was great because several classes were headed out on field trips and were able to pack some sandwich, chips and fruit so that they could still get lunch. We brought in Tupperware containers for the staff that would be leaving the building. It worked out really well.
The last raffle prize on Friday was Green Thumb and included a large pot, some garden gloves, and four New Guinea Impatiens plants. I think the teacher who won them will really enjoy her prize. I heard the entire fourth grade was in her room cheering for her when her name was announced at dismissal.
It was a great week. I think Stacy and I will start planning a bit earlier next year so it doesn't become one big rush, but considering we didn't know we were doing it until a month ago, it went very well. And now we rest.
