The staff at IVE are impressive. We want to encourage them and show that we are aware of their dedication and the unwavering belief they have in our children.  We celebrate our staff in two ways throughout the school year.

Staff Appreciation Week

The first week in May is the time to shower the love on our IVE staff.  Each year is a different theme and each day of appreciation week is a different activity.  The theme and activities are announced sometime in April each year. 

Staff Appreciation Luncheons

In addition to the week May, the PTA hosts staff appreciation lunches throughout the year. This is an opportunity to appreciate our teachers and staff with a little extra love through dishes prepared by our school family. It is our goal that each parent be given the opportunity to donate to the lunches and be part of the celebration of our amazing staff.

Each luncheon is a different theme, whether it's comfort food, the ultimate salad bar or soups and stews.  Menus will be available to sign up for individual spots about 2-3 weeks prior to each luncheon.

Thank You,
