Teacher Appreciation Week 2022 — Wrap Up


Last week was jam packed with events, treats, gifts, donations, and volunteering to make GHMV teachers feel loved and appreciated.

PSO parents contributed in a million ways to make it a special week – you donated supplies, food, funds… you volunteered to serve, to craft, to keep an eye on kids in the lunchroom… you made time for all the extra activities this week… you sent cards and gifts… you offered to help… and when we were down to the wire and needed gallons of iced tea, no one had to ask you twice – you all just made it happen overnight. 

Below are photos from the week, starting with the 29 doors PSO decorated on Friday, April 29. And followed by more photos of the week’s activities that would not have been possible without GHMV Parent contributions.



Teachers and staff walked in Monday morning and saw that their classroom doors were outfitted in beautiful themes and colors.


Thank you, PSO, for another cooperative and successful effort to make our kids' school just a little bit brighter. It was great seeing parents share helpful tips and strong tape... parents meeting for the first time, and some meeting for the second time because, you know, sometimes we forget names.



THANK YOU to Gloria Nwelue and Anna Rosedale for all the planning,

coordinating, recruiting, and communicating that kept things running smoothly last week. And thank you to the following parent volunteers who hosted something fun each day for GHMV teachers and helped on campus with serving, set ups, clean ups, lunchroom duty, sharing their graphics talents, and bringing in supplies and equipment:
