Teachers at J. H. Williams enjoyed star treatment recently during “Hollywood Week”. This is a special week to commemorate ‘Teacher Appreciation Week.’ The week included games, prizes, and food provided by administrators, parents, and various clubs. Among the activities teachers participated in a spa day; fan mail from students; a baby picture identification in which teachers attempted to identify their colleagues as babies and a scavenger hunt, which sent groups of teachers all around town to fulfill the requirements of the hunt. The winner of the baby picture identification was Stephanie Plunkett. Winners of the scavenger hunt (pictured) were Jessica Touchet, Sharon Vercher, Denise Orellana, Charlotte Viator, Dustin Dugas, Ann Bell, Hannah Vincent, and Hal Lopez. J.H.W. teachers extend their sincere thanks and appreciation to all who worked so hard to make Teacher Appreciation Week so special.
