Every single teacher/school staff person I know
Lights a flame in a child to watch it grow.
Just like a candle that burns in the night....
Hoping that all can see it's light.....
In the future, burning steady and bright.

C. L. Salter staff received wonderful, scented candles from our PTO.  What a way to "brighten" our day!

Teachers and staff members everywhere
Are popping here and popping there;
We appreciate the healthy popcorn snack...
To help us get our "poppy self" back!

Who doesn't need an extra serving of "poppy" this time of year?  We are all in our "end of the year tizzy mode"!  Our wonderful PTO likes to keep us "popping" so we all were given a bag of popcorn!

While fruit treats are healthy and strawberries are my fave-
We all know what teachers mostly crave...
All fruit is good and we all love to eat;
But when chocolate is added-oh,  my, what a treat!

This is what we found on the work room table yesterday!  Can we say "yummy" and "spoiled?"  

This morning when we arrived to school
We found this; isn't it cool?
A clipboard and pen to keep us in line...
Being a teacher is simply divine!
3 days of teacher appreciation....
We have THE best PTO in the NATION!

We can all stay on task with our cute clipboards and matching pen.  Thank you to our wonderful PTO for three (3) days of making us feel so loved and special!  Y'all are the icing on our cake, for sure!

Principal Johnson
Secretary Light

Principal & Secretary of the Day!

Our schools need money to buy lots of "stuff"
And these two girls sold more than enough!
They are the highest sellers in C. L. Salter School-
They are principal and secretary for the day-now that's COOL!

LaMaria and Macy can tell you all about
How the office life is-there's no doubt!
Their future is looking so bright and well
And it all began with items to sell.

If you would like to be where they are
Just set your aim high and you will go far!
I'm sure they'd be happy to share some tips with you-
Straight from the heart of seller #1 and #2!

The reason for success across the nation
Is why this week is Teacher Appreciation!
They give of themselves the whole year through
Because they want what is best for you!
They get up early and stay up late
They are the last in line; they always wait.
They grade your papers wherever they go
Their red pens and grade books are always in tow!
They support you at school and some of your events
They laugh at your jokes (even the ones that make no sense)!
They pat you on your back when you have been good
They let you know, too, when you've not been as you should.
They try their best to be honest and fair
They want you to know how much they care.
During this week when we celebrate education....
Try YOUR best to show your teacher "a little appreciation!"
