Ongoing Teacher & Staff Appreciation
The Teacher & Staff Appreciation Committee conveys special expressions of gratitude (and treats!) to Crow Island’s wonderful faculty and staff throughout the year to show them our appreciation for their dedication and hard work. It offers lunch and refreshments to staff members as needed throughout the year (holidays and in-service days).
