Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

May 1st – 5th

Let’s use this time to acknowledge all who positively affect our children’s lives every day.

Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools would not be what it is without all of our caring teachers, aides, secretaries, custodians and bus drivers!

Gurney students:
Help us appreciate all staff members at Gurney by participating in a week of thanks!  Each day we will appreciate a different group of staff who make a difference on a daily basis in the lives of our students.   On each day (M-TH) of recognition we ask that students bring in a small, homemade thank you to school.  On Friday students bring in a flower to be added to a whole class teacher bouquet.

Monday, May 1:        Classroom Teacher Appreciation
Tuesday, May 2:       Support Staff (custodians, lunchroom aides, playground helpers, office staff)
Wednesday, May 3:     Encore and Intervention Staff Appreciation
Thursday, May 4:      Bus Driver Appreciation
Friday, May 5:        Backyard Bouquets (each child brings in a flower to add to a class bouquet)
