Dear Sprague Community,
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful and committed group of teachers at Sprague. Every day, they greet your children with a smile and do their best to provide outstanding learning opportunities in a caring environment. I am constantly impressed with how well our teachers know each child and how they work to promote growth in both social and academic areas. Our teachers are happy to be working at Sprague and be part of our warm and cohesive community. They always appreciate a note from student or a parent thanking them for their efforts. Please see the message from WEF:
IT’S NATIONAL TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!
Honor your teachers with a WEF Red Apple.
Teacher Appreciation week is a time to celebrate and honor those adults in the school community who make an impact in your child’s daily life. Please consider celebrating your child’s teachers and their hard work and devotion with a WEF Red Apple donation.
