Staff Appreciation Breakfast 

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Staff Appreciation Breakfast in December.  Another big hit!  The next feast is coming up on Wednesday, February 26. If you would like to participate, please bring a breakfast item, juice or coffee.  (The breakfast needs to accommodate approximately 80 hard working people). Here is an opportunity to send the Henry Ford teachers and staff a big thank you for getting the year off to a great start.  Feel free to email if you need ideas or need to make arrangements to bring something the day before. Spread the word and thank you for your support!

Desayuno de Agradecimiento al Personal – ¡18 de febrero!

Primero que nada: ¡muchas gracias a todos los que donaron comida para diciembre desayuno de agradecimiento al personal! ¡Fue un gran éxito!

El siguiente desayuno está programado para el miércoles 26 de febrero. Si desea participar, le pedimos que traiga algo de desayuno, jugo o café. Serán, aproximadamente, 80 personas (para que calcule cantidades). El objetivo es atender y agradecer a los maestros y al personal de Henry Ford, porque trabajan muy duro y por haber iniciado bien el año. Si tiene preguntas (o necesita ideas de qué traer), puede mandar un correo electrónico o mandarnos preguntar en la oficina. También puede decirnos si necesita traer algo desde el día anterior. Por favor, pase la voz. ¡Y gracias por su apoyo!
