Parent Hosted Teacher Luncheon 2023

September 28th

On Thursday during the Parent/Teacher Conferences we would like to bless the teachers by providing lunch, giving them an opportunity to be together during their short break midday. Thank you for your consideration in providing this for them. If you would like to donate towards the purchase of the lunch platter, salads, fruit tray, etc. it would be a tremendous blessing! Any amount collected over what is needed to cover this will be saved and used towards the luncheon for the teachers at Christmas. You can Venmo @Joelle-Clink (to confirm Venmo #2379) or PayPal: clinkjunk@gmail.com
Here is also a sign up if you’d like to bring something for the luncheon or would like to be a part of helping with it.  We are thankful for your generosity showered upon them!
