May News – Teacher and Staff Appreciation

 Portsmouth Middle School 

Teacher & Staff Appreciation Lunch 
      May 10, 2018

The annual Teacher and Staff Appreciation Luncheon will be held on Thursday, May10, 2018. This is our chance to thank the wonderful people who do so very much for our children throughout the year. Coordinated by VIS and the PTO, the luncheon is a special tradition the teachers and staff really enjoy.


As in the past, the main dishes will be catered.  You can help us offset that cost with a small monetary donation.  If you wish to donate a desert or a couple of hours of your time that would be kindly accepted.  Again this year, we will organize a gift card raffle for the staff.   If you would like to contribute a gift card from your favorite local merchant, please send it in to the school in a sealed envelope labeled “Staff Appreciation Luncheon Raffle”. If you can help, please fill out the form below and send via backpack express.


Call or email Nicole with any questions


Thank You,
