Faculty/Staff Back-to-School Luncheon
On the day before school starts, the teachers and staff are working, and PTO volunteers welcome them back with a lovely luncheon. This event gives the PTO a chance to show how much they appreciate the Douglas teachers.
One or two PTO members coordinate the event, and Douglas families donate all food and supplies. In addition, 2-3 volunteers are available the day of the luncheon to set up and clean up. The luncheon is served buffet style in the teachers' lounge. Tables are set up in the cafeteria so the staff can relax and enjoy lunch with their colleagues. The luncheon is usually served around noon, after Dr. Whitbeck has finished his morning presentation.
The staff is very appreciative of this event, and it is a wonderful way to welcome everyone back to a new year.
