PTF End of Year Luncheon for Staff and Teachers

A few times a year, GRACE’s PTF organizes a lunch to let our GRACE faculty and staff know how loved and appreciated they are. But it takes parents volunteers to help make these events successful. Our end-of-year luncheon is scheduled for Friday, May 11, 2018.

Please consider signing up to bring food or beverage or volunteering to help set up/tear down to make our end of year faculty/staff appreciation lunch a special time for the people who pour into our children all school year. Please note:

  • Food should be dropped of during morning carpool, already cooked/baked.
  • If at all possible, PLEASE use disposable/throw-away containers/dishes. If you have to use another dish that you want to get back, please mark it with your last name and “upper or lower“ so we can get it back to the correct campus for you to pick up on Monday.

Thank you in advance for your help!
