Parent-Teacher Conference Dinners
February 5th, 7th and 11th
Parent-teacher conferences are fast approaching and we need your help to make it a success!
This time, we’re trying something new! Working with area restaurants, our goal is to cater meals for the teachers and staff who are working the long days – but in order to make it a success, we need your contribution!
To purchase the dinners, we are asking each family to donate to help us reach our goal.
Please send cash or check to school (made payable to Thornapple PTO) no later than Wednesday, January 23rd
If you’d like to send via PayPal, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can, select that you are sending to a friend to avoid fees and also include a note that it is for Parent-Teacher conference dinners.
Thank you in advance!
**Any funds in excess of what is necessary to purchase the teacher meals will be used towards coffee and donuts during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 6th – 10th**

Did you know that you do not need a teaching certificate to be a guest teacher in schools anymore? If you have 90 or more semester credit hours from a four-year-accredited university you could guest teach in one of our Thornapple classrooms or in a classroom anywhere in West Michigan. If you are interested or have questions you can contact Mr. Lyon for more information, if you’re ready to get started you can login to to www.EduStaff.org to start the application process. Guest teachers are scarce across the state so this is one more way you could support our school and students.
