Teacher & Staff Appreciation Lunches – November 21 & November 24-26

To show our APPRECIATION to Opstads’ WONDERFUL Teachers & Staff we are planning lunches during parent/teacher conferences! This allows the teachers to have a worry free lunch during conference time! To make this a great event, we need volunteers and donations! We are serving approx. 35 and donations each day should be dropped off in the Teachers lounge by 10:30am. If you sign up for supplies (i.e. plates, napkins, etc...) please drop off on Friday morning (11/21) or earlier to the PTA office (labeled Teacher Appreciation). Also, if you would like to help but don't have time and would like to contribute cash to help with food expenses, please let us know.

If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Fierling (jennifer.fierling@live.com).
