To kick off holiday festivities, teachers were invited to the library Thursday during third period for the annual cookie exchange and lunch hosted by the PTSA.

“I think it’s awesome,” Spanish teacher Ashli Taquino said. “We look forward to it every year and it just really helps kickoff you know the break so it’s awesome.”

PTSA members plan this event with the help of parents students.

“There’s a person on the PTSA board,” PTSA member Ancy Philips said. “That’s a hospitality share. And she basically set up a sign up genius and talked to the board. And we all work together to try to get people to volunteer students for the cookies and of course, parents for the food.”

Although there is lunch, Taquino looks forward to the cookie change.

“Teachers appreciate every part but I think people get super excited about the cookie exchange,” Taquino said. “It’s pretty sweet.”

The purpose of the event is to show teachers that the community appreciates what teachers do.

“We just wanted the teachers and the staff to feel appreciated because they do so much for the children and the families,” Philips said. “Every year we’ve been doing this for them. So this being a combined effort of students and parents working together to appreciate the staff. We just want them to feel know that we’re so grateful for what they do.”
