Subject: HELP on POMS NEEDED
We are getting ready to start the new school year.
Third grade has been paired up with Kinder and Pre K teachers. They are trying this to see if they can have more morale support and bonding between primary and intermediate teachers.
We are implementing a new program that alot of teachers are going to find different and alot of work.
I would like to send them a little something to boost morale and keep them going. Any ideas on sending little candies with a saying or poem.
I thought of something like this- I NEED OTHERS
Mounds- I know it seems like a Mound of work but planning together can help.
Thanks alot in advance

Isn't it amazing
What a lot a team can do
Just how many differences
Because of me and you
So come on let's work together
It's not as hard as it might seem
And after all, we might enjoy ourselves
Because there is no I in TEAM
