We enjoyed spoiling our BW teachers and staff this week! With your help we were able to give every teacher a handwritten note from students (thank you key club 🙌🏻) with a $10-15 gift card enclosed. Additionally, we raffled off several other gift cards. We provided lunch from Apple Spice and Panera yesterday. Today, despite the dreary weather Kona Ice truck came by to provide delicious shaved ice to the staff. A big thankyou to all that donated giftcards, monetary donations and their time to help make this week possible! And thank you again to our incredible teachers and staff!
