Staff Appreciation meals provide an opportunity for staff to take a break from their classrooms and gather together to share a meal and community AND for parents to show their appreciation to staff for all they do to make King the wonderful school it is.
This lunch will feature a Mexican menu from local wonder Picoso
chicken and cheese enchiladas (one/person)
rice and beans
The owners of this take-out restaurant located in Berkeley’s Epicurious Garden have been great supporters of King, providing wonderful meals for the 6th Grade Class dinners and other staff events at generous discount.
The rest of the meal will be a potluck, with parents providing beverages, side dishes, and desserts. These can be delivered to the Teachers Lounge in the morning or brought to the event.
We will also need parents to set up, serve, and cleanup.

PTA Goes Green!
To eliminate waste and the need to shop and re-shop for supplies for PTA events, we purchased over the summer goods we will be able to reuse for years to come.
Hot and cold beverages will be served in Mason jars. Volunteers pick up jars after events and take them home for washing.
We also purchased inexpensive flatware—a much better alternative to throw-away plastic or expensive compostable products.
And two new urns means we will be able to serve hot coffee and tea more economically and with less waste.
Finally, we will be working with our King Green Team to facilitate recycling and composting at PTA events.
