Staff Appreciation Luncheon (SAL) 2012 - Wednesday March 7th

posted Jan 17, 2012, 6:34 AM by Clara Jerez   [ updated Jan 18, 2012, 2:35 PM ]
Volunteers needed email baymase@gmail.com (Steven Bayne) or call 215.439.1725This is a time in which we, the parents, take the opportunity to say "Thank you" to the administrators, teachers, staff assistants and everyone associated with the education and growth of our youth here at Masterman. We do this in what has become a traditional event - we express it through food! It's a time to cook your favorite dishes, be they main, side, desserts, salads. We receive food donations in the morning; set up the IMC before the event (early dismissal day); and clean up at the end. Volunteers at the lunch get a chance to meet virtually everyone who deals with your child - from our maintenance staff to the lunch room crew to security and crossing guards and of course, the teachers and administrators. 

The other part of this tradition is the providing of gift bags for all the above mentioned. That means enough giveaways (Examples: pens, pins, lotions, sample colognes and perfumes, etc.) to fill the bags for approximately 120 people! Sooooo.....all those who want to participate, please email me (Steven Bayne) or call 215.439.1725. The response to what you're bringing will come from our recorder extraordinaire Pamela Blanding Godbolt. She will be the person who  acknowledgies your donation of food type/category. As far as gift donations....well, you'll probably hear back from me! We also hold a raffle of items such as gift certificates to restaurants and stores (as received)...

It's not too early to commit! If you have those connections to businesses that appreciate the efforts of true professionals (our teachers), then let's get them to contribute to our gift bags and raffle. and, think about what YOU want to contribute in regards to food to show our staff how much we appreciate all they do for our youth. 

Again, feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Let's make this our most successful SAL Day!
(and THANKS for the responses I'm beginning to receive from parents, both 'newbies' and 'old heads' thus far...!)
