!!Staff Appreciation Week!!

May 3rd - May 7th

Let’s face it. This school year has been certainly one to remember. But we’re getting through it thanks to our Standiford Staff and their amazing efforts. Take a moment to thank a staff member during Staff Appreciation Week, May 3-7, 2021.

Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day—and in a year where instruction was virtual, in-person or a mix of both, their immense work and impact have provided a much-needed sense of community and connection. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, our staff members at Standiford are continually working hard to ensure every Standiford student has the tools they need to reach their full potential.

This year will be one for the history books. So let’s celebrate the good memories we’ve made, and the way our staff members have gone above and beyond by appreciating them for the whole week.

We hope that you will join us in celebrating our wonderful staff next week. If you need ideas on how to #ThankATeacher, please visit the National PTA Website.
