Excellence in Education: McPhee Thank You Breakfast

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News


As parents pulled up to Mcphee Elementary school today, they got a unique surprise. The surprise was a stack of pancakes and a ‘thank you’.

"We wanted to take one day to really celebrate all that they do for our scholars and our staff," says principal Betsy Gomez.

Before the school day even started, teachers were hard at work flipping flapjacks, pouring syrup, and passing out plates.

 As parents pulled up to drop off their kids for class., teachers rushed to help kids out of the car and offer parents some breakfast. For elementary staff, it was a simple way to thank the parents and community that help McPhee Elementary School thrive.

"We thought this would be a fun way to do it. As many of our families are headed off to work, by providing them with a plate of pancakes as they drive away, that’s a little something we can do to brighten their day," says Gomez.

Gomez says she hopes McPhee will have another, bigger pancake breakfast again next year.
