Hospitality Events

So...May is always the busiest month in a school, and then Hospitality goes and adds more to it.  So, just wanted to share some Hospitality events from the month of May...

So, first, we have 2 teachers who are pregnant (well, now only one because the teacher on the right had her baby the day after the last day of about good timing!).  The grade level of the pregnant teacher hosts the baby shower, and Hospitality provides the food for the shower.  Because we were running out of time, we combined the baby showers into one, and doubled our budget for food.  Yay!  :-P

Every other month we have a Birthday Club event.  We celebrate the birthdays of the staff for those two months.  Usually a grade level hosts it, and we have the event in one of their classrooms.  However, due to time, we combined BC with a faculty meeting, and just had it in the library.  Hospitality pays for the food for the event, and the hosting grade level gets to pick the menu.  Our fourth grade team hosted the event, and they picked strawberry shortcakes.  They were delicious!  Somehow I only got one photo though.

For our Second Annual Hello Summer Bash, we went to the house of one of our Pre-K teachers.  We did potluck and just hung out and had lots of fun.

We also texted this co-workers who didn't come to the party.  That's our music teacher, one of our 3rd grade teachers, and myself making a "where are you and why are you not here?!" face.

What kinds of things does your faculty do at the end of the year?

Teacher Appreciation Week

So...I know Teacher Appreciation Week has come and gone, but I did want to share a few things that Hospitality did this year for Teacher Appreciation Week.

These folders and construction paper packs were donated to the school from Office Depot.  Our AP asked if Hospitality would like to use them as giveaways, so, of course, we did.  :-)

One of our Pre-K teachers (who is on Hospitality Committee) decided to spend her hard-earned money to buy every teacher a carnation, and then have her Pre-K students deliver them throughout the day.  The only people at school who know she bought them are her, myself, and our music teacher.  She told everyone they came from Hospitality...isn't that nice of her?  I have the best people on my committee.

This was our biggest thing for TAW.  We stuffed goodie bags for every teacher and teacher assistant at my school.  One of our third grade teachers got her students to decorate the bags, and then I passed them out Wednesday morning.  Inside the bags were paper clips, binder clips, pencils, glue, sticky notes, pens...and I feel like something else, but I can't remember.  Haha.

Also, I just wanted to share this little plaque that my Teacher Assistant got me for TAW...

I just love it.
She knows me so well.

Currently June

It's that time again...
time to link up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade!

So here it is...

Listening: The wifey and I are rewatching Glee from the beginning.  We're currently in Season 2, on the episode where Sue's sister dies.  :-(

Loving: I have been trying to go to the beach for a while, but I have been crazy busy.  So I LOVE the fact that I finally got to go this past Saturday.

Thinking: I have a lot to do...ughh.

Wanting: Because I am the Resource ESE teacher, they are making me move.  :-(  I have to be out of my full-sized classroom and into an office-sized space.  I'm ok with the move (mostly), but I am stressing about getting moved out.  Anyone want to pack for me?

Needing: My first camp starts Monday...I just need one more day to pack up my room before getting ready for camp.

Summer Lovin: I think it's self-explanatory.  :-)

Can't wait to see what you all have going on Currently.  :-D
