Every March, we take time to recognize all of the hard work and dedication of our amazing faculty and staff. Thanks to the tireless efforts of so many, Hubbard Woods is a warm, welcoming school for our children.

We provide breakfast and afternoon treats in the faculty lounge throughout the week, create a banner of thanks from students, collect donations for raffle baskets and goodie bags, and sell raffle tickets to honor teachers and raise funds that go back to the classrooms. Room parents organize personal notes from students and flowers to be given to the teachers mid-week and on Friday, we host a teacher luncheon to wrap up the special week and draw raffle prize winners!
