Staff Appreciation Week is the week we celebrate the wonderful teachers and staff here at Monterey Road School, because they are simply the best! We encourage
all families, especially students, to get involved in the week’s activities and show their appreciation, not only for their teacher, but for all of the staff members who keep our school running each
and every day (office, library, learning center, custodial, etc.). Below is an outline of the week’s activities.
Theme: UNDER CONSTRUCTION!
Our theme this year reflects the changes Monterey Road School will experience during the next year and half with the upcoming modernization project. Please visit
the classrooms and school office to see the theme-inspired posters created for each teacher/staff member (created and generously donated by The Sign Place). The staff lounge will also be
decorated according to theme, and will serve as the location for all staff lunches and treats during the week.
Luncheons & Treats: Monday thru Friday
We love to feed our staff, and they love the home-cooked dishes provided by Monterey Road School families! In addition to the wonderful home-cooked lunches and treats, we throw in some fun with lunch-time raffle prize drawings. You can be sure the staff lounge is a welcome retreat in the middle of the school day during Staff Appreciation Week.
Tuesday, May 3: Flower Day
In keeping with the theme, students should CONSTRUCT a flower for their teacher, and any other staff members they choose. Flowers can be constructed of just about anything you can think of: construction paper, colored tissue paper, pipe cleaners, beads, fabric, wood and paint, origami papers … the possibilities are endless. Bake an edible flower, or a cupcake flower! Just use your imagination and create something unique!
Wednesday, April 25th: Construction Dress-Up Day
Students and staff, join in the fun … come to school dressed up according to our theme. You could dress as a construction worker, equipment operator, safety inspector,
etc. Or dress in construction safety colors … neon yellow and orange! For obvious safety reasons, do not bring real tools to school.
Thursday, April 26th: Builders Hall of Fame Day
Attached you will find a certificate for your student to complete and present to their teacher. There is space for students to write why they think their teacher/staff member is a top-notch builder. We encourage students to recognize other members of the school staff, and the certificate is available for printing by clicking the certificate image to your right.
We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of the families who provided cash donations, food items, or simply their time to Staff Appreciation Week. Your generosity is truly astounding! Providing teachers and staff with such a wonderful week of appreciation only happens with the involvement of the entire Monterey Road School community.
