Once a month, we have Wonderful Wednesday to show appreciation for our wonderful faculty and staff. On Wonderful Wednesday, parents provide breakfast and lunch items to the teacher’s lounge for all of our Teachers and Staff to enjoy. Sagamore Hills teachers and staff love and look forward to Wonderful Wednesdays and are always so appreciative of the hard work that goes into them.
Different grades provide an easy breakfast and lunch for the entire staff of Sagamore Hills. The first one is an all-school one, but after that, each grade, starting with 5th, takes a month and provides breakfast and lunch for the staff. The PTA provides the last month. See the calendar for dates and grade level groups or volunteer sign-ups for event specific instructions.
The Room Parents are responsible for coordinating Wonderful Wednesday. The Room Parents from each class, per grade level, will need to organize and delegate responsibilities. You may want to have one room parent be the organizational leader. It works nicely if you can have half the grade cover lunch and the other breakfast.
Please keep in mind that you are feeding approximately 80 teachers and staff.
