Teacher Appreciation

Thanks to everyone who donated and assisted us in planning and hosting (Farah M, Kara B, Rosy M) Teacher Appreciation Week. We encourage everyone to send in their thank yous in their own way and we had a wonderful lunch featuring handmade arepas, salads, and fixings and a flower bar for teachers to bring some color to their class or home. We refilled the lounge with coffee, snacks, and treats. We were inspired by the many ways the Wilton community expressed their gratitude and recognition for our teacher community, we saw kindness rocks, note collections, and more. We are truly grateful for "The Brook". We will also host an end of year lunch catered by Wilton Deli on June 12th.
