Staff Appreciation Week is Almost Here!

We really appreciate our hardworking teachers and staff, now more than ever. This year we’ll be celebrating our teachers and staff from May 3 to May 7. 

Please consider contributing towards a staff luncheon or check the suggestions below for a variety of ways you or your child can show your appreciation during the week.  

 Donate a Lunch to an Einstein Staff member 

We usually treat our wonderful staff to a luncheon this time of year. However, safety precautions prevent us from offering our traditional potluck. Instead, we are hoping you will help the PTSA provide catered box lunches and other treats for the staff. Each lunch will provide a sandwich, chips and cookie.  Please consider contributing to this worthy cause before May 4. Donate a Lunch here:

Send Thanks to Teachers and Staff

Students are always welcome to send notes to teachers and staff LWSD email (Staff Directory).  Now that some students are back in school, they are welcome to bring cards, notes or other non-perishable items (please no food or flowers) for their teachers and staff. Drop boxes will be available for staff and remote teachers at the school during the week of May 3-7. 

Here are some ideas for students to bring in or email to their teacher or staff member:

  • Write a note 
  • Draw a picture 
  • Make a card 
  • Send a funny joke 
  • Email a picture of your student holding up a "Thank You" sign.  

If you elect to bring a gift for a staff member, please keep in mind the district gift policy. Questions? Please email: 


April 30 - Safari Animal Color Day

That's right! Let's all show our school spirit by appreciating our safari friends and dressing in their colors. We do not want costumes, we just want to see their colors. You are also welcome to share an interesting fact about the safari animal whose colors you are wearing. That means, letting us know which animal’s colors your wearing and something about that animal that you find fascinating.

There are endless choices: zebra, elephant, lion, giraffe, rhino, cheetah, tiger, wildebeest, hyena, antelope, meerkat, warthog, oryx, and so many more! Do a little research to find your favorite.
