Throughout the week of April 16th-20th, the Maple Ridge PTA sponsored a Teacher Appreciation Week. Each day teachers were shown by parents, and students alike, just how much they are loved and appreciated. Throughout the week, teachers enjoyed a drink from Fizz, a massage, cake pops, decorated doors, and special notes and gifts from the students. On Tuesday, many students even took the time to dress like some of the teachers, and the teachers were able to dress like some of the students. On Wednesday, teachers were served a delicious breakfast of waffles and fruit (with homemade syrup!)
Maple Ridge PTA would like to congratulate Mrs. Adamson, our UEI teacher for winning not only the Utah PTA Outstanding Teacher Award, for Region 10 (Nebo and Provo school districts), but winning the Utah PTA Outstanding Educator for the ENTIRE state of Utah (over 600 schools).
