Staff Appreciation Week

This year the Staff Appreciation theme is “Carmel Creek is WILD About Our Staff”, Jungle/Animal Theme!

We are truly lucky to have so many teachers and specialty staff members that look after our children everyday so, like previous years, each class room will adopt 2 specialty staff members (in addition to your classroom teacher) to give them thanks and to make them feel like the king/queen of the jungle.  Each classroom will be responsible for 3 staff members total!

On Tuesday, Thursday and Friday the children are asked to bring in something special to show their appreciation. Please don’t forget your adopted staff members!


The staff will be enjoying food each day in the staff lounge. Each grade will sponsor the food on the specified day listed above. A sign up genius link that specifies food items the teachers will enjoy is below.

K and 1st:

Sunday, March 19th
In the late afternoon (2pm– 4pm) parents will be asked to decorate your three allocated staff members main entry door and the school. Some staff members only have an internal door or desk.  Please have a look at your allocated staff members door/ desk and start planning. There are TONS of great ideas online if you search “staff/teacher appreciation week door decorating” and any jungle/animal themed doors are appreciated!  

Items to note:

1.       Only PAINTERS TAPE can be used on the doors/walls as scotch or other tape damages the paint, please bring some with you.

2.       No hanging or placing things on top of the door frame as this triggers alarms.

3. Carmel Creek hosts teachers and administrators from other schools on Thursday March 23rd, so Ms. Ryder is especially excited to show off our festive school!
