Teacher Appreciation Week Highlights

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Prospect PTSA wanted to show how much we appreciate the teachers and staff, especially at the end of this difficult year. On Monday they were treated to bagels and cold brew coffee to start the week. The staff room was then decorated and everyone received individual S’mores kits to go along with the camping theme decorations. They then ended the week with a yummy lunch purchased by PTSA from Mendocino Farms. They were super appreciative and wanted to thank PTSA for making it a special Teacher Appreciation week. Thanks parents for your donations that allowed this to happen!
