PTA Needs Your Help to Decorate our Staff Doors!

PTA Needs Your Help to Decorate our Staff Doors!


As part of NRE Teacher Appreciation Week, it would be great if we could have each teacher's and staff member's door decorated. PTA is looking for volunteers for each teacher's/staff member's door.  Decorations do not have to be elaborate and can be something as simple as a poster board with stickers, pictures, drawings, etc. decorated in a theme that represents that person (his/her favorite animals, places, hobbies, books, shows, etc..). 

If you would like to volunteer to decorate your child's teacher's door or any of the staff members listed, please sign up, using the sign up genius below.  We would like for all doors to be decorated no later than Wednesday, May 10th.  You may begin decorating as early as next week and the ideas are endless!  Pinterest has lots of ideas to get you started!  

For rooms inside the building, please decorate the hallway door (not the door inside the classroom).  For rooms in the mobiles, please decorate the door inside the classroom. 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Student Climbs stairs with Firefighters

“Never forget” became permanently ingrained in our heads and our hearts after the attacks of September 11, 2001. But now, 16 years later, our schools are full of students who weren’t even alive when history was made; leaving many teachers to decipher how and what to teach students about a moment in our history that changed our world forever.
