Black Rock Staff

You want to pick up a little something for your student’s teacher or a staff member that has helped you out this year!  But you don’t know what they like –

faculty-bookNever fear, there is a book of BRE Staff Favorite things right inside the front door of our school.  Check it out to find out where your student’s teacher likes to eat, or get their nails done, or their favorite hobby.

Thank you to our Staff Appreciation Team for putting this book together!



Thank you Black Rock for Giving Back
