Staff Appreciation Week: THANK YOUThe PTA once again hosted Staff Appreciation Week at Harmony, from May 6th until May 10th.This year's theme was: Like Flowers in a Garden, we've Bloomed in your CareO - M - GoshOur goal was to show the Teachers and Staff of Harmony Middle how much we appreciated all their hard work during the year. We had snack bags, and food, and prizes and themed baskets, and a luncheon, and oh so much more. We couldn't have done it without the help of all the fabulous parents who volunteered their time to make and buy goodies and decorate and set up for Teacher Appreciation Week. The whole week was fabulous and the staff were so appreciative of the week that we gave them.
We had some fabulous businesses around the area who donated a gift or gift card that we used for prizes to raffle off during announcements. Everyone feels special winning a prize, and we thank these businesses for helping add to the fun:
Jersey Mike's Subs
Affordable Sheds & Garden Products
Parents, be sure to patronize these businesses and thank them for their donations. These door prizes were a great asset for the week.
Thank you ALL for everything that you did. Our goal was met and now, we have the level to set, or exceed, for NEXT YEAR!!
Thank you HARMONY PARENTS!!Harmony Middle PTAGinny Skrobialowski
