On their return to school last week, the PTO (thanks to you!) sponsored take-and-bake pizzas for all teachers and staff from Papa Murphy's. It was so much fun that we're doing it again. Kind of.
Every November the Academy of Finance has a pie fundraiser for pick-up right before Thanksgiving. This year, with the help of the PTO, anyone may buy a pie for a teacher. Fresh from The Fresh Market, you can gift a Sanderson teacher or staff with pumpkin, apple, wild berry, and chocolate pies. Each pie is just $10; $5 of which is donated to AOF.
Just a little way to say thanks to our Spartan staff!
On October 19, 2020, the Sanderson teachers returned to a campus that had largely sat silent for over six months, since that fated Friday the 13th (of March). Surfaces were wiped clean and social distancing enforced, but beneath those masks were smiles.
The Sanderson PTO did our best to make the staff's return to school filled with appreciation. For our frontline workers, we passed out #spartanstrong t-shirts on Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday were filled with fully-stocked snacks and drinks in the teacher's lounges. And on Thursday, everyone was sent home with their own take-and-bake pizzas from Pappa Murphy's.
Welcome back, Spartans, welcome back!
