We hope that all students and families write notes, or accolades, to our staff. We have a format for doing this that makes it easy for students of all grades to participate. We ask that each student writes at least two notes: one for their classroom teacher and one for another staff member, depending on last name. Please bring your accolades to school no later than Thursday at drop off. There will be bins at all entrances starting Monday, May 3rd, where students and families can put their accolades at drop off or pick up. Volunteers will collect and sort the accolades.  Accolades are due Thursday, May 6th by 8:10 am.  The accolades will be distributed to staff on Friday, May 7th.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week 2021

Every year, the Montlake PTA organizes ways for our community to show their gratitude for our amazing staff. This year, we will do something special for our staff each day as we have done in years past. We need your help! There are three ways in which you and your family can participate: create a short video, write notes (accolades) to the staff and sign up to help or purchase items. 

See below for the full schedule of events for the week!
