Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week recap

The Staff Appreciation Committee would like to thank parents and businesses that participated in honoring the SUPERHEROES of Oak school during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7-11). The wonderful festivities included daily surprise raffles, smoothies, breakfast, Oberweis ice cream sundae bar, cookie bar, snack cart, Garrett’s popcorn, and lunches, including a very successful potluck provided by parents. Starbucks of Hinsdale donated enough coffee to refuel our super staff all day long. Altamura Pizza of Hinsdale provided organic pizza samplings to our staff. Also, Fuller’s provided gift cards to all 60 staff to keep the teachers’ cars spotless and well maintained for their daily commute to Oak. We would like to thank the following businesses for their gift card donations for our raffles: Meatheads, Baldinelli, Spa nineteen, and Mani-Pedi of Hinsdale. The teachers and staff are very grateful and appreciative of all the support from the Oak family community and local businesses.
