Staff Appreciation

Thanking all of our Golden View Elementary Staff for all that they do!    

Virtual Staff Appreciation Week May 4th-8th

Dear Golden View Families,

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 4-8! Like so much else these past few weeks, it’s going to look a little different. What will not change is the love and support we want to show our children’s teachers. They continue to create and adapt learning environments to meet the demands of this health crisis, and the needs of their students. 

We are also asking everyone to show our appreciation to Golden View’s classified staff - for everything they do while our children are on campus, as well all the work they do behind-the-scenes (even now, during shelter in place). 

Below you will find information (and inspiration!) for each day. Most of these small gestures are the same for the entire school. To ensure that everyone is appreciated, each grade level is being asked to focus on one specific group of Golden View employees (in addition to their classroom teachers, aides/paras, and PE & science teachers).  

Please take 5-10 minutes each day May 4-8 to show your family’s appreciation. Hearing our children connect with the GV community, and share what they’re grateful for, is just the positivity we could all use right now!

Monday, May 4th: May the Force / 4th Be with You

Thursday, May 8th: Thank You Thursday

Don’t forget to say THANK YOU on your PE & science teachers' Google Classroom streams or send them an email!

Friday, May 8th: Pay it Forward Friday

Our teachers show us they care and encourage us to help others throughout the year. Share this kindness and do something nice for a family member (near or far). Dedicate your good deed to your teacher. You can set the table, send a virtual hug to a relative...what will you do today?
