Staff Appreciation

staff appreciation

The Staff Appreciation Committee, on behalf of the PTA and the parents, provides lunches throughout the year to show our appreciation for all of our Maywood staff.  Each lunch is hosted by families from a different grade levels.  A note will come home when your child’s grade is hosting, and we ask that parents from that particular grade be the main hosts by signing up to provide the food items needed for that month’s lunch.  It really is fun to encourage our staff and give back to them in this way.  We hear that they really appreciate it!

Please contact us if you ever have questions, suggestions, or want to join our crew at

Cindy Little, Joanna Lowell-Forker, Heather Clayton, Becky Pilgrim, Brooke Giesbrecht & Megan Anderson – Maywood Hills Staff Appreciation Crew

Below is a list of the lunch dates and themes for the entire year.  All of the links are active now, but future links will not have food items listed for sign ups until approximately 3 weeks prior to each lunch (right before the first kid mail announcement goes home for that month).

May – “Cinco de Mayo” Lunch:


We also encourage the whole school to participate in Staff Appreciation Week every May! During that week, there is a different theme every day. Bring a flower to your teacher, write a nice poem or letter to show your appreciation for them, or bring them one of their favorite things!  Then later in the week, we deliver the Grant-A-Wish items (that we have spent the month prior collecting) in order to fulfill our teachers’ needs in the classroom!
