Teacher Appreciation Week – May 3-7

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is May 3-7. Show all your teachers and the staff at Trace Crossings Elementary how much you appreciate all they do for you with notes, treats, flowers or something for their classroom. And to make things even easier, you can check our teacher list for suggestions of favorite snacks, flowers, and their classroom wish list.

The PTO will be providing our Rock Stars with a lunch on Wednesday to show how much we love them!
