In an effort to show our appreciation for the time and effort that the Bates staff dedicate to our children, Team Bates sponsors a monthly themed lunch, snack or other activity to show our appreciation one day.
The Staff Appreciation Chair is responsible for choosing the date and planning the food or activity needed, notifying the office with the plan, creating a Sign-up Genius with the items needed and sending & monitoring the Sign-up Genius to make sure sufficient supplies are procured. Or, in some instances, Team Bates buys the food, and you are in charge of ordering. On the day of the event, you will set up the Food in the Teacher's Lounge and clean-up when the day is over.
Schedule of Staff Appreciation Events: September: Bagels, Muffins, Coffee & Juice on the First Day of School* October: Donuts and Cider from the Dexter Cider Mill* November: Dinner during report card conferences* December: Christmas Cookie Exchange January : April: Replenishment of Classroom supplies and Playground equipment May: Cinco De Mayo Taco Bar
