Spring has sprung at Berkeley High School. We have entered the final quarter of the 2018-19 school year. Year-end concerts, performances and activities are being planned, talk of prom and graduation fill the hallways. Teachers and staff continue to tirelessly support our students.

The week of May 6th is Teacher Appreciation Week. We would like to shower our teachers and staff with treats and surprises. We received lots of positive feedback from the staff for the events we planned for last year's week of appreciation. Staff workrooms were overflowing with all sorts of delicious foods and decorated with bouquets of flowers. They were so grateful for the support and surprises the week brought for them. Local businesses and parent donations made it all possible. We were able to provide breakfast and afternoon snacks each day, all to the delight of staff.

A Sign up link will be sent out next week. We are looking for four types of donations:

·  Breakfast items (sweet and savory foods along with coffee), think donuts, scones, quiche

·  Snack items (sweet and savory) and canned beverages, think popcorn, pretzels, bags of mandarins, cookies, hummus, vegetable and fruit plates

·  Flower bouquets from your garden or local store

·  Raffle Prizes/Surprises: get creative

All of the items will be placed in the staff lounge and workrooms across the campus. We have one staff lounge and four workrooms. We will be stocking and restocking the rooms all week long.

The raffle will take place on Friday, May 10th. Raffle items could be coffee cards, gift certificates or items you have made and would like to donate. Gift cards sitting in your junk drawer waiting to be used but ignored are welcome. Regifting is totally appropriate here! Please drop off all raffle donations at the BHS front desk by Thursday May 9th. Thanks to our generous community, last year we were able to give away a weekend in a Laguna Beach condo and a dragon boat cruise as grand prizes

Some suggested raffle items:

·  Coffee cards

·  Gift card to any restaurant on Shattuck where staff could grab lunch

·  Itunes, Amazon, Hulu or Spotify gift card

·  Gift card to a local book store

·  Bake a cake and the teacher/staff gets to take it home to their family for the weekend

·  Donate a service that you provide: yoga class, haircut, bike tune-up

·  Memberships to local museums or galleries

·  Flower arrangements for a staff member to take home to enjoy

·  Bottles of wine

·  Weekend stay at your vacation home

Thank you in advance for helping make this a special week for our teachers and staff.
