As your family wraps up the school year it’s a great time to say thank you to the people who have lent a hand in your child’s school day. Whether that’s teachers, volunteers, or a bus driver, a homemade treat always does the trick. As teachers and mothers ourselves our hearts are full of gratitude for volunteers in our classrooms, and the educators of our children.
