We have all the plans in place to make our teachers and staff members feel like the stars that they are! Here are the day-by-day details of what’s happening during our Hollywood-themed Teacher Appreciation Week and a few areas we can still use some help.

Sunday, May 3rd, 4 – 6 p.m.: Bring the whole family to Hedgiegraffiti 2015 and join us as we decorate the sidewalks of the school to greet our outstanding teachers and staff on Monday morning!

Monday, May 4th: Spirit Day–Dress-up/Fancy Day: Come dressed ready for the Red Carpet. Students and staff can come dressed up and fancy (sneakers are fine with a fancy outfit, especially if you have PE on Monday!!) The teachers and staff will be treated to breakfast* before the school, day begins.

Tuesday, May 5th: Spirit Day–Dress like a Teacher. The teachers and staff will enjoy a yummy “Cinco de Mayo” themed lunch* during their regular lunch time.

Wednesday, May 6th: Spirit Day–Sports Day. Feel free to bring a flower for your teachers and staff members today…they will be ready for a unique bouquet (flowers from the garden are perfect!) Join us at the McDonald’s on Frederick Road for Hillcrest’s Spirit Night, 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Thursday, May 7th: Spirit Day–Crazy Hair Day. The teachers and staff will sample various snacks at the Snack Bar* in the teacher’s lounge.

Friday, May 8th: Spirit Day–Pajama Day. A teacher and staff favorite, we’ll host a Dessert Day with a cornucopia of delicious sweet treats. We are asking parents to donate goodies and we need more! To sign up to bring in a sweet treat, please go to the Sign-Up Genius: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0549abaa2fa57-teacher .

Thank you to all who have adopted staff members. You should have received a confirmation email with the details and your staff member’s contact info. If you thought you adopted someone but did not receive the email, please contact us asap at hillcrestteacherappreciation@gmail.com.

*The PTA (with the money raised through the Invest in Hillcrest campaign) is hosting two meals and a snack day for the teachers and staff. The PTA has also purchased a small gift for each day that every staff member will receive. We don’t want to ruin the surprise but we’ll post photos later of all the gifts.

If you have any other questions and/or would like to help more during the week (such as serving one of the meals or checking to make sure the snack bar is stocked), please contact us at hillcrestteacherappreciation@gmail.com.

Thank you for helping celebrate our outstanding staff and teachers at Hillcrest! It will be a fabulous week!
