Sharing this on behalf of the PTO: Teacher Appreciation week is the week of May 4 – 8th. It would be great if students would take time in the next couple weeks to send their teachers hand-written notes or cards. This school closure is just as difficult for them as it is for the students & parents. Also, PTO would like to put together a video for the teachers in district from the students, and they need parental help. If you could snap a picture of your kid(s) holding a thank you sign of some sort, OR record a short video thanking their teacher(s), it would make our video super touching for the teachers. The pictures and videos can be emailed to the PTO's email address: OrangevillePTO@gmail.com. Deadline for the media submission is Friday May 1st.
