The Hospitality team aims to express gratitude and appreciation of all TES teachers and staff. Efforts include compiling a list of staff favorites (shopping, hobbies, activities, and food preferences) and organizing special events throughout the school year. Typically, one hospitality event occurs each quarter, but opportunities to say “thank you” are encouraged and can be led by families throughout the year. Quarterly events include the following:

Quarter 1: Welcome Back Breakfast

To support TES staff as they launch the new school year, TESCA provides a breakfast one morning during the first week of school.

Quarter 2: Thanksgiving Pies

This well-loved tradition distributes a pie to all staff members prior to Thanksgiving break. Due to ongoing health concerns related to COVID-19, pies are secured through a commercial source instead of being baked by families. See below for more details on the 2021-22 school year event.

Quarter 3: Valentine’s Day Lunch

TES staff show love and kindness to our children each day. This Valentine’s Day Lunch enables a way for families to show their love back to TES by providing them with a delicious meal. We love TES!

Quarter 4: Staff Appreciation Week

As we get closer to wrapping up the school year there is so much to recognize and celebrate. This event is typically the largest appreciation event of the year and involves special activities for each day of the week. 

TESCA Staff Appreciation Week 

May 2-6, 2022 Join us in celebrating our appreciation of TES!  Families can share a moment of gratitude each day, complemented by TESCA sponsored food and gifts for all TES staff. This year, please include our valuable COVID testers* and adopted staff” for each classroom in the festivities.

In addition to the daily events, families can post a note of thanks on Padlet at any time during the week. Thank you TES!

Daily activities follow this year’s TES theme, “Better Together.” Check out the staff favorites list for ideas.
