Public School Foundation Breakfast and Roses
Each year, the PSF hosts a teacher breakfast and sells roses as part of the district's teacher appreciation week.  The money raised supports the Teachers First Fund.  This event is separate from what we do at Carrboro for teacher appreciation week and the breakfast is different than the one the kindergarten class will donate to on April 20th as part of our year long activity of providing breakfast on delayed openings. To honor a staff member and support the PSF and the Teachers First Fund click HERE

Staff Appreciation Week, May 8-12

Please join in the celebration in honoring Carrboro's nearly 100 staff members. The PTA and the Staff Appreciation Committee have planned a week longseries of events. You should have received a flyer in Friday's folder. We realize how much time and money people put into the fair, so we kept our requests to a minimum.  We are asking that parents and students participate in the following activity on Tuesday the 9th:

Tuesday, May 9th: A Token of Appreciation-Student Choice: Fruit, Flower, Letter
ASK: Please have your child bring in 1 flower, 1 piece of fruit or write 1 letter to a staff member(s). Don’t forget Specials teachers and other individuals who make our school so wonderful!
In addition, we are still collecting funds for the whole school gift giving campaign. Distributions will be given out on Wednesday, May 10th.  You can send cash or checks made payable to the CES PTA in an envelope or donate by clicking HERE.

Thank you in advance for your support.
