Forts Ferry Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

The Forts Ferry PTA is sponsoring a few activities to show appreciation for Forts Ferry teachers and staff for their great work.  Please see the different activities below and join in if you can.

  • Take a picture of your student holding a sign thanking his/her teacher and/or staff member.  Email the picture to the teacher and/or staff member to brighten his/her/their day.
  • Decorate your driveway or a sidewalk with messages of appreciation using chalk for one or more teachers and staff members.  Take a video of the artwork and post it on the week’s FlipGrid.  Directions for FlipGrid will be sent out via School Messenger on Friday, May 1st.
  • Be a part of a Sign Parade showing your appreciation for the teachers and staff at Forts Ferry.  Design and create a sign of appreciation.  Place the sign along the grassy area in the bus loop at Forts Ferry School anytime from Tuesday, May 5th in the evening through noon on Wednesday, May 6th.  Green and white balloons will be added to the grassy area in the bus loop.  Staff members will be asked to take a ride through the bus loop beginning at noon on Wednesday, May 6th to enjoy the messages.
