May 1 is School Lunch Hero Day

There are many ways to show appreciation for our "Lunch Ladies," who are true heroes preparing up to 1,800 meals per day for children across Transylvania County. You could write a hand-made letter or card, or make a poster and take a picture when picking up meals this week. Or take a photo of your favorite meal, and let us know why you like it. Every thank-you makes a huge difference for the person receiving it, and the person expressing it. We hope you will participate in #SchoolLunchHero Day this Friday!

May 4-8 is Teacher Appreciation Week

All next week, we will celebrate our teachers—dedicated professionals who care about every child and have put every effort into making this the best school possible, every single day. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and gratitude! One way is to add your note to encourage our teachers at We are excited to share messages from our teachers when we publish their Flipgrid for you on Thursday morning!
