Long-stem roses donated by the Perry Hy-Vee were distributed Wednesday at St. Patrick’s School in Perry as part of Staff Appreciation Day.

“It used to be called Teacher Appreciation Day,” said St. Patrick’s Principal Doug Latham, “but it takes a whole team to run a school, and that includes staff and faculty both.”

St. Patrick School will finish its spring term May 28.
