  • Teacher Appreciation Week Activities (May 7-11). Our weeklong theme is "Because You Life Us Up" and we have big plans to celebrate our wonderful Wolftrap teachers all week long, with special plans for each day.  We need your help to make the week a success. Here’s what you can do:

     

    First, help your child in answering one of these questions about his or her teacher. Have fun with it! We will be compiling the answers and sharing them with the teachers at the end of the week. Click here

     

    Second, each grade is being asked to help host a special treat for the teachers either in the morning or during lunch, . Please see the sign ups below and help if you can! The teachers love their monthly PTA luncheons, so we’re excited to try and give them something special to look forward to every day of the week!

    Friday: "DRESS UP"

    Kids are encouraged to dress nicely and bring in cards or letters to teachers. We will also collect letters from students and families who would like to write a letter to an elected official asking for continued support of our FCPS teachers. Expressing our gratitude for our educators to our elected officials would be a great way to honor teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, as well as expose students to acts of gratitude and civic engagement. Click here for ideas about to whom and where to address letters. Please bring in your letters to the front office and the PTA will make sure they make it to the appropriate officials.
