MARK YOUR CALENDARS!! We are one week from our Teacher Appreciation Parade! Our parade will be Friday, May 15th from 4:30 pm - 6 pm. Our teachers will be under the solar panel side of the school. Below is a map of the parade route and where our teachers will be! As part of our celebration, families are invited to use low powered water guns to help keep our teachers cool and have a little fun during this event! Please, no high powered water guns as we want to keep everyone safe, happy and the parade moving 🤗 There will be tables set up on the outside solar panels in which any teacher gifts can be left so they do not get wet. Booster will be out helping to receive these from the driver side of the vehicles! We can’t wait to celebrate Peoria Traditional School with our families!
It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! Peoria Traditional School has the BEST teachers!
