  • Monday: E-gift card — Virtual gifts
  • Tuesday: Have your child record a VidHug, which will be delivered to them on Thursday: Ms. Naylor or  Ms. Lighty. On this day, the PTA will also send them Starbucks gift cards.
  • Wednesday: Flower delivery. If any parents would like to pool money to send the teachers flowers, we can help you with managing delivery to their home. 
  • Thursday: VidHugs delivered to teachers
  • Friday: PTA will deliver lunches to teachers via DoorDash. Sponsored by the Kinder - 2nd grade classes for this week's Buck's teacher lunch.
