Surgoinsville Middle SchoolThis is a picture of the principal appreciation days and the special teacher appreciation days. The principals got to dress up like tonto and the lone ranger. They received a free lunch of bbq, potato salad and baked beans. They read the thank you letters from the G-force team, received a keychain flashlight to spread the light of knowledge, and also a stress ball since that is a stressful job keeping the school in tact. The special teachers keep the jungle safe so they received a survival pack bag with the ‘necessities’ of school. They got to wear their safari hats that the students created. The school was decorated with thank you vines and posters.  Click here for the photos.

Volunteer High SchoolWe celebrated special teacher and staff appreciation day with a delicious “jungle” themed lunch. Our school couldn’t run without these important team members. We appreciate them. Click here for the photos.
