Staff Appreciation

The teachers and staff really are “the cherry on top” at CTE, and the PTO plans to show them appreciation throughout the year on your behalf by presenting each teacher with a small gift during their respective recognition week.

Teacher Appreciation Suggestions

If your family would like to express gratitude for your child's teacher, we encourage you to do so. Feel free to participate as much or as little as you’d like!
Our Favorite Things

•  Check out the Staff Profiles to learn some of your teacher’s favorite things.
•  Write your teacher a note or poem expressing why he/she is so special.
•  Write a list of five things you appreciate about your teacher and attach a “selfie” to personalize it.
•  Bring your best smile to school and simply tell your teacher “Thank you for all you do!”

Please contact the Teacher and Staff Appreciation Co-Chairpersons, Cheryl NolanMeredith Loughmiller, or Abby Kruse with any questions.
