Friday we will have the 1st Annual Teacher Appreciation Turkey Hunt! Throughout the day Friday turkey cutouts will randomly be placed all over campus. Teachers, if you find one put your name on it and place it in the box located in the library. Students, if you find one write the name of a teacher that you appreciate on the turkey and place it in the box, located in the library. A drawing will be held last hour Friday for our teachers. Let’s hunt some turkeys on Friday and show our teachers how much we appreciate the work they do!
