Teacher Appreciation Luncheon - Thank You PTO!

This past Thursday, the Francis Wyman School staff was treated to a luncheon that would have made all of Red Sox Nation proud! Thanks to the leadership of Mrs. Becky Icken and the support of the luncheon volunteers, the entire staff enjoyed a delightful lunch in a room that was transformed into Fenway  Park. As teachers arrived, they walked down the hallway with green grass under their feet and red banners on the wall. Each banner highlighted each staff member and was attached to a thank you letter that was personally written by a student. The art room was covered with Red Sox decorations, including a wall to wall banner that looked like baseball fans sitting in the stands looking in at the teachers. There was popcorn, soft pretzels, ice cream, hotdogs, nachos, and even cotton candy. The selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees was extensive, each one delicious. The desserts were absolutely incredible tempting all to sample a variety as they couldn’t have just one! There were even raffle tickets for prizes for staff. During this one lunch period, everyone felt like they were at a party and truly had a wonderful time. Teachers could not stop talking about all the time, thought, effort and creativity that went into planning and hosting this event. The next day they couldn’t wait to check the teachers’ room for leftovers! Speaking for all the staff, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Becky and her team. We truly felt so special and appreciated. The luncheon was a grand slam!
