Letter: Parents show appreciation for Kaneland teachers

By on May 21, 2009

Each year, the Parent Teacher Network Hospitality Committee coordinates two events for the teachers at Kaneland John Stewart: a dinner during parent/teacher conferences in the fall and a luncheon during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Parents at Kaneland John Stewart have always been generous of not only their time donated to the school, but the support given to the various PTN committees. This year was no exception. The Hospitality Committee would like to thank the 86 families who either donated salads, side dishes and desserts, supplies or cash donation for the teacher luncheon held on Thursday, May 7th.

The cash donations were used to purchase chicken breasts, hot dogs, hamburgers and brats from Ream’s Elburn Market. We would also like to thank Joe Blaszynski, who spent the day outside grilling for the teachers, and to Shanne Kuipers, Becky Stewart, Kathy Burgin, Sarah Burke, Cindy Krause, Chris Sikon, Karin Marshall and Heather Sade, for helping with the set up and/or clean up of the event.

Our Kaneland community is extremely fortunate to have parents such as these who continue to show their support and appreciation to the teachers at Kaneland John Stewart. We, as parents, are lucky to have such dedicated teachers for our children.
