Staff Appreciation

Staff Appreciation Week

Every year, the KPPN hosts its annual Staff Appreciation luncheon to thank KP staff members for their hard work and dedication on behalf of our students. The event is typically held in the cafeteria, so staff members can sit together and enjoy a catered meal.  Thank you to the many parents who donated gift cards, helped serve, bake and clean-up, and Dr. Lisa Oliveira for generously providing the salads and water. Special thanks to the Bistro of Westborough for the delicious luncheon and cake.  The Bistro offers a full breakfast menu, lunch options, complete bakery, and extensive catering menu specializing in barbeques and clambakes.

Many thanks to new Staff Appreciation chair Diana Cooper for the incredible amount of work she put into this event.  In addition to the luncheon, teachers were surprised each day with baskets filled with a different token of appreciation.

Contact Diana Cooper, Staff Appreciation Chair, at with any questions.
