Teacher Appreciation Lunch at Rye Lake Campus
Rye Lake Students Host Teacher Appreciation Lunch
The event took place during Teacher Appreciation Week
Southern Westchester BOCES students at the Rye Lake Campus gave a big “thank you” to the teachers, aides and staff at their school during the inaugural Teacher Appreciation Lunch on May 9.
Teachers were invited to come on in to the dining room, enjoy some music and relax while students served them a three-course meal. According to the menu, the price for the meal was a “smile.”
“Please enjoy your meal today for it comes with a side of gratitude and a smear of love!” guests were informed.
Each staff member, including teachers, school aides, nurses and others, received a small gift.
“I just want to take a moment to thank everyone here,” Principal Scott Kaufman said.
Teaching assistant Edith Rivera, who helped organize the lunch, received a bouquet of roses for all of her work she put into the wonderful event.
“I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she said, wiping away tears. “I really appreciate it.”
