One of the things we would like to do is send notes of appreciation to our teachers and staff and then convert this into a giant poster - one for each campus. This is where we need your help!

    We are collecting notes for all members of the Q300 staff through his google form. https://forms.gle/7VpGEhgMvib1R38w9

    You can fill this out with your child (or have them fill it out on their own - depending on age obviously). We have made it easy for you and have created a drop down box for all teachers and staff (including cluster and specials teachers, administrators, secretaries, parent coordinator, paraprofessionals, TAs, etc..). You can fill out the form multiple times if there are several folks that your child wants to thanks!

    Please fill out the form(s) by April 29, 2019 (the absolute latest) so we can then create and print the poster.
