Excel Academy Staff Hospitality Host 2016-2017

This is such a great way to say "THANK-YOU" for all that our wonderful staff at Excel Academy does for us each and every day. As the staff hospitality host for the week, you get to decide how you would like to treat our staff with food items of your choice. You can provide full meals each and every day of your week, a meal one day and snacks the rest of the week, or snacks each day. The possibilities are endless and completely up to you. Please remember that your week includes bringing in food each day.

One of the best parts of being the staff hospitality host is that you also EARN VOLUNTEER HOURS! Yes, for every $10 you spend on your food items, you log 1 HOUR of volunteer time. If you are cooking then please remember to include the time that it takes you to prepare the dish.

The snacks/meals will be set up in our teacher's lounge each morning. Please feel free to drop the items off at the front office before school starts (school starts at 8:20am) or if your items need prep time then please feel free to sign in and let the wonderful front office know where you will be going.

It is also a way to show our appreciation of the teachers and staff, who work hard to make the school the best environment for our kids.

We are so excited to put on this year's Winter Carnival. In order to make this event a big success, while helping to support our 4th-8th graders in raising money for their field studies, we need your help. Please help us by donating the items below. 

When you drop off an item be sure to mark the bag (or the box) that you send it in with the number of the item you are bringing. Each slot has a number on it. That is the number of the craft that we will be doing and it will be SO helpful to keep it organized this way.

Remember to keep track of all that you spend because for every $10 you spend on the below items, you earn an hour of volunteer time.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact: Holland Nelson at holland214@hotmail.com or Lynn Schulze at lynnmschulze@gmail.com
