Teacher Appreciation Dinner

April 28: 

A lot of planning came to fruition tonight, as about 20 teachers/coaches/mentors from our community showed up to be honored at our 2nd Annual Teacher Appreciation Dinner.    

The youth invited people who played a role in impacting their lives for good.    

It was great to see the sense of pride on the youth's  faces....

as they interacted with and honored the men and women who work so hard to teach and mentor them.  

The menu for the night was lasagna, breadsticks, salad, and berry topped cheesecake.   Ellie enjoyed helping in the kitchen.

And it was fantastic to see Mrs. A and Ms. P again!   Emma had Mrs. A TWICE as a teacher (Kindergarten and 5th grade) and Adam had Ms. P in 2nd grade.   They're both talented and dedicated teachers and we were excited to honor them tonight.

It was kind of crazy to see how much Adam has grown in the last year...

2015             vs             2016

Ms. P brought her guinea pig, a fact which delighted Ellie immensely.  

It was a lot of work, especially with two members of my presidency out of town for it, but I had a lot of people chip in to help and I thought it turned out beautifully well.  Though I homeschool my kids now, I am immensely grateful for those who have worked so hard to love and teach my children over the years.

As the daughter of a woman who taught elementary school for 20 years, I can tell you that teachers love this kind of stuff! What a wonderfully thoughtful thing to do! And sooooo much work! You, Mrs. Goold, are the bomb! It looks amazing!
