National Teacher Appreciation Week is from May 4 – 8 this year.  Teachers play a key role in the success of their students, not only in the classroom but in life.  They have a passion for making a positive difference in the lives of our children and go above and beyond each and every day.  Our community is so fortunate to have such great educators and we want to take this time to thank them for their selflessness, compassion, and commitment.

Patterson Junior High has been appreciating their teachers all week and we were happy to make a donation to be used for goodies and snacks during their celebration!
