National Teacher (Staff) Appreciation Week is May 2 - 6, and we thought it would be wonderful to show our teachers and staff members some love by showering them with some small tokens throughout the week. Below is a list of suggestions for the week, but feel free to do whatever you feel led to do to show your appreciation to these sweet teachers.
Monday: “Our future is in Your hands!” - Give some nice smelling hand soap, lotion, or antibacterial gel, or a craft using your child’s handprints
Tuesday: “You ROCK!” – pop rocks, rock candy, Rock Star soft drink, painted rock for a paperweight, or child’s drawing
Wednesday: “Thanks for helping our child ‘bloom’!” – flowers, seeds, plants, child’s drawing
Thursday: “We are sweet on you!” - give a small gift card for a treat, such as Sonic, Spoons, Starbucks, etc...or bring a treat/candy bar, homemade goodies
Friday: “You have been just WRITE for our child!” – pens, pencils, a handwritten note, journaling tablets, stationery

We are getting so excited about Science Discovery Night this Thursday from 6 - 7:30!! It will be so fun! We have about 25 groups who are participating. The cafeteria will be the "Robot Room" with Tiger Robotics, robots from TAMU Engineering Technology and some Lego Robots built and programmed by some of our very own Rock Prairie Wranglers! The remainder of the science presenters will be in the gym.
As each Rock Prairie Wrangler enters the front door, they will have the opportunity to register for door prizes and to pick up a ticket which can be redeemed for a slice of pizza, chips (Thanks to the Jamals and Frito Lay!) and a drink. We will draw for door prizes throughout the evening and we have some really cool prizes. (Thanks to the PTO!).
The families will also have the opportunity to visit our Feelin' Groozy book fair that evening. Lots of fun things going on!
The evening will be an open house format with families free to roam from one activity to another at their own pace.
