Doors will be photographed and posted to our Facebook page starting on Monday. Friends and families are encouraged to like their favorite doors and share the posts. Whichever class has the most likes and shares will be rewarded with a Brilliant Banana Split Bar and 20 minutes extra recess! The winning teacher receives a gift card, as does the winner of the Enrichment/Staff category. We will also be sharing it on Instagram and Twitter, but only the Facebook likes/shares will count as votes.
