|Hello wonderful Ardmore Families,
Its’s been a wonderful week of celebrations! Starting with Teacher Appreciation Week, students, staff and families participating in many activities to celebrate the work and dedication of our amazing Ardmore educators. Throughout the week, we acknowledge the years of commitment and fun facts about our teachers. Students loved learning a little bit of each teacher and were so amazed by the years they have dedicated to our community. Thank you to everyone that contributed this week to show our appreciation. We are most thankful of our PTSA, who provided our educators with many treats, a luncheon, lattes and more!!! On behalf our school, we thank you PTSA!!!
Us, principals, also received some very special tokens of appreciation from students. May 1st was principal appreciation day and our students may Ms. Lo, Assistant Principal and I feel extremely loved. Thank you!
Lastly, today we celebrate our School Lunch Heroes. We share our appreciation for all the waork they do on Friday, May 6, during School Lunch Hero Day. School nutrition employees must balance many roles and follow numerous federal, state and local regulations to ensure safe and healthy meals are available in schools. We are so grateful for Ms. Har and Ms. Maria for their extraordinary work and care!
Everyone is very important and valued member of our community. Our school would not be the same place without them!
