Staff Appreciation

Our PTSA is proud to honor and support our staff through appreciation efforts. The PTSA launched a staff mini grant program for any staff PTSA member to apply and receive $200 toward supplies/activities that directly affect our student body. We welcomed staff back to school with a continental breakfast and will provide cold beverages in the staff lounge to all. Join in staff appreciation by emailing volunteer@southshoreptsa.org
