Teacher Appreciation

May 8-12, 2022
At Both VDV and SMS

Let's thank the teachers and staff for all their hard work this year!

Volunteer to help organize, set up, decorate, and clean up Teacher Appreciation activities.

We will also have a sign up for food donations.

Our teachers and staff have been amazing this year and we are so very thankful for them! We really want to spoil them and show them how much we care and appreciate each and every one of them!

We have 5 great days planned with goodies and a catered lunch at the end of the week. Any amount you are able to donate is appreciated. If you prefer to send in cash or check to the school, please make any checks payable to Somerville NJ PTO and both can be sent attention PTO/TAW Week.

Thank you!
