Staff Appreciation Lunch

May 1st is already upon us, so  that  means it is time to start planning for our annual Staff Appreciation Lunch.  Our theme this year is “ KGMS staff are Super Heroes”!

For those who are new to the school, this lunch is held on the Report Writing Day  (students are not in attendance), and is our chance as a school to let ALL our wonderful staff know just how much they are appreciated.  This year the date is Friday, June 1st, which is coming up in less than 4 weeks!

We will be using the Perfect Potluck website again for signing up to help (see information below).

How you can help:

  • before the lunch
  • on the day of the lunch (setup, clean up, serving)
  • providing a food or beverage item (can be dropped off the day before or on the day before 11am)

There was so much wonderful food from our families last year. This means a great deal to all of our staff and they look forward to the delicious luncheon every year!

The other thing that means a great deal to our staff, are the comments we receive from parents, students and other caregivers who have been positively affected by how our staff help our kids all year.  If you want to express how the staff have helped you/your child/your family, please submit your comments on our Guestbook website (Guest book). You can also use the “super hero theme” in your comment.These comments will be displayed at the staff lunch as part of the decor that shows our appreciation. You can also access a link to the guestbook from the Perfect Potluck sign up page.

Thank you in advance for helping with this important event! And remember, this goes towards your volunteer hours!
