AHS/SILSA Faculty & Staff Luncheon - Show Your Love, Signup Here! Our annual Faculty/Staff lunch, snowed out in December, has been rescheduled for February 14, Valentine's Day. This will be a great way to show your love for our hard-working faculty and staff! NOTE: Many of you have already signed up for the earlier event; we have kept your sign-ups intact, but if you need to change them, PLEASE DO! Click here for the Signup Genius.
Although some of the main dishes will be catered, we need to supplement with vegetarian and salad options to add more variety. We also need help with set-up, serving, and clean-up. Faculty and staff especially appreciate gift cards too! Please select a volunteer opportunity below, and for food and gift cards, please write a description in the comment column (this will allow us to avoid too much duplication). If possible, for food donations, please bring enough of your dish to serve 6-8 people. Food and gift cards may be dropped off Thursday morning (February 14th) either at car line from 8-8:30 or in the hallway outside the SILSA first floor office anytime between 8 and 11 am. Lunch will be served from 11:30 am to 2 pm. Thanks so much! Click here for the Signup Genius.
Date: 02/14/2019 (Thu.) Time: 8:00am - 3:00pm EST Food or gift cards may be dropped off in the car line or at the SILSA front office. The event will be held in the CTE lobby,

Dear PTO, I would like to take the time to tell you how much, we teachers, appreciate your lovely luncheons and the fun raffles. It is so nice to feel taken care of once in a while, and your dishes are always prepared with so much love (the secret ingredient!). You are the most active PTO I have ever encountered, and I am impressed by all your hard work, and the time you give to our schools." -Asheville High Teacher
