Staff Appreciation Week

In our Staff Appreciation era

IES teachers and staff make the whole school shimmer, and this week is our chance to tell them "thank you" for their hard work and dedication. Please scroll down to see flyers for ways you and your students can get involved. These are all optional--feel free to show your appreciation in any way you choose. 

The PTO will be supplying lunches, treats, and raffle prizes to staff thanks to the generous contributions of our community supporters and volunteers.
