Hip hip hooray for our PTA

To the editor:

On behalf of the entire Dr. Elmer S. Bagnall School staff, I wish to express our heartfelt thanks to our marvelous, and unequaled, PTA. They are, and always have been, the most generous and supportive group of parents any educator and school staff member could ever wish for.

This past week, at our beloved Bagnall School, we were once again treated to an amazing array of treats and gifts to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. Not to be outdone by the likes of Dr. Seuss himself, the activities included (but were not limited to) A Splendiferous breakfast on Monday, A Popcorn buffet on Tuesday, A Luncheon Feast on Wednesday, Dunkin Donuts coffees (delivered!) on Thursday and, last but not least, a desserts bar and complimentary Shiatsu massage to end the work week.

I challenge anyone to try to beat that lineup.

Our students must have noticed the lilt in our step, extra smiles that started each day and, yes, even the extra pound or two we may be carrying around as a result of the indulgence we all enjoyed. Hard to find a way to convey our appreciation of our amazing PTA, for they have celebrated who we are and what we do in ways mere words can never justify.

So, we need and want you to know that if your ears have not been ringing, stop and listen a little harder. We can’t stop singing your praises.
