TEACHER APPRECIATION CARDS DUE

Friday, May 7, 2021

Want to say thank you to a Bowditch staff member for Staff Appreciation Week?  Well, you can!  Please click on the Google Doc link  to sign up to make a personalized card for a staff member and gift a $25 gift card.  (gift cards should be ONLY $25).  If a teacher/staff member you love already has a sign up, please consider making a card and purchase a gift card for another staff member (one sign up per staff member). The card should include a personal note of thanks, the activated $25 gift card, and include the recipient's name clearly written on the outside of the card.

 

You can either drop off the card at the Bowditch office, or mail it directly to the staff member to the school address. Thank you in advance for your generosity... it will be really nice for the staff to receive personalized notes and gift cards from our Bowditch community.
