Information for Last Month of School and Summer Camps
This week is National Teacher Appreciation Week. Friday, May 6th is also National School Lunch Hero Day. Please take a moment to thank your child’s teachers this week. Gifts are nice, but teachers really value your notes, and they especially cherish notes from their students. Maria Tapia (TapiaM@lisd.net) is our wonderful cafeteria manager. Feel free to send a note to Maria and her hardworking cafeteria staff. They take great care of our students at breakfast and lunch.
Thank you to all of you who provided donations and especially to the McKamy PTA volunteers who worked long hours Friday and stayed late to ensure a fun and memorable 8th Grade Dance.
