Valentine Elementary School teachers and staff were honored with a special “Very Hungry Caterpillar”-themed luncheon in the school’s Little Theater as part of staff appreciation week. Mexico’s Best Catering provided soft tacos, horchata and agua fresca. Decorations included student handwritten notes of gratitude that were linked together forming caterpillars and were posted on the Little Theater walls. Each staff member took home a hand-crafted scented candle. Throughout the week, students thanked their teachers with small gestures such as home-picked flowers. The event was sponsored by the school’s PTA and coordinated by Valentine parents Caroline Fabbro and Malinee Muditajaya.
