Snaps from the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon

The pandemic has ushered in a new way of teaching and learning. From in-person to virtual to a hybrid learning environment, our students have faced challenging, yet innovative times in their learning and development—and teachers have been at the heart of it all! Running the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon was a small act to show them our love and appreciation for all that they do every day at MRS!

Check some snaps from the Luncheon on April 1st.
