Encouraging Meadowmere staff, the Grandview Education Foundation and Meadowmere Retired Teachers have put together monthly treat bags. In February staff received baggies of Tootsie Rolls with a tag stating, “Thank you for the Roll you play each day! Keep up the great work!” In March staff will receive individual bags of potato chips with a tag that says, “You’re all that and a bag of chips!”

Cindy Bastian, Grandview Education Foundation, said the other retired Meadowmere teachers donated money toward the teacher appreciation treats because “Meadowmere was the best place to work and we know that this year the staff is being challenged more than ever before. We want to support ‘our’ school family!”
