Teacher Appreciation Luau, Weds. May 21 at Noon

If you love our fabulous Lakewood Teachers, here's your chance to bless them! We are organizing a special Luncheon to honor our awesome teachers, coaches and administrators. We are going with a Luau theme to celebrate their long-awaited summer break!

Teacher Appreciation Luau
Wednesday, May 21st
12:00 Noon

The Luau will be held in the school foyer (in back of the sanctuary) where we'll have tables set up for the teachers to sit down and enjoy their lunch. In addition to the Luau, we would like to be able to give each teacher a small gift. If you would like to contribute toward that, there is an envelope in the office -- look in the wooden tuition box for a colorful envelope with Hawaiian flowers!

Moms can bring salads and other luncheon foods (see below for list) and we will start setting up the buffet/tables/chairs at 10:45 am. We will need lots of help setting up and cleaning up, so please let us know if you are available, thanks!

There are many ways to help..... and many hands make light work!! It would be great if each mom could volunteer in one (or more) of the following ways:

1) Food and Drinks! This is of course the biggest need. See below for food list.
We will need enough food to set a buffet table to feed approximately 20 teachers, coaches and administrators, so we'll need lots of food. Since we can't get into the kitchen while class is in progress (science class), we will be serving mostly COLD foods and salads. Please call Vickie to help with food and drinks,

2) Decorations, Flowers for tables, and Paper items (plates, cups etc.) Do you have any party decorations or Tableware that looks like somewhat like a Hawaiian Luau? Please call Marilu, number is below.

3) Set up and Clean up helpers (set up at 10:45am, break down a little after 1:00pm) Please call Marilu, number is below.

4) Small Gift contributions. We are providing each teacher/coach/helper with a small gift to take home. If you would like to help contribute money toward the teacher gifts, there is an Envelope in the school office -- look in the wooden tuition box for a big envelope stamped with hawaiian flowers.

Please call one of these moms ASAP to volunteer:
