Celebrate and Thank Grady Teachers & Staff





Thank Grady’s teachers and staff for helping our children be SUPER LEARNERS!

Monday:  Teachers and Staff Are Super!  Teachers and staff are invited to enjoy coffee, tea, and breakfast to kick-off the celebration and to thank them for all they do for our children.

Tuesday:  School Supply Day.  Students are asked to show their teachers how special they are by donating school supplies to their superheroes.  Requested school supplies are listed below on this page.  Please give the supplies directly to the teachers and staff on Tuesday, May 2.  Teachers and staff will also be served a catered lunch.

Wednesday:  Superhero Shirt and Gift Card Drawing Day.  Students may show teachers and staff they are superheroes by wearing a shirt with an image of a superhero or other admired person/character to school.  Additionally, on the morning show there will be a school-wide drawing for prizes of restaurant gift certificates, store cards, services, and other donated prizes.  If you would like to make a donation to the school-wide raffle, please bring the prize (attach a note with your family’s name) to the front office by the end of school on Tuesday, May 2, or contact Lauren Fitzgerald at [email protected].  Your name will be announced as a donor during the raffle.  We will also help our heroes get SUPER-relaxed with massages.  A masseuse will be on site from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to provide massages for teachers and staff during their break times.

Thursday:  Please have your child express their gratitude to their teachers and favorite staff members by having students write cards, such as the card linked here:  Superhero Card.  You can download and print color copies of this card. Give the cards directly to the teachers and staff on Thursday, May 4.   We will serve the teachers and staff a catered lunch.

Friday:  Teachers and staff will enjoy a light breakfast to end the week.   We are so thankful for all they do!
