We have got to hand it to our teachers…they are among the best in the Commonwealth! We hope you will join us during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 8-12, 2023, to celebrate the 👏🏼applause worthy work👏🏼 they perform each day in the classroom!
We invite students, parents, community members, and even colleagues to celebrate their favorite teachers. Whether it’s for a current teacher or a teacher from a previous semester or school year, there’s no time like the present to express your gratitude for everything they do to support students. Limited budgets shouldn’t deter you from showing your appreciation. An act or gift of gratitude does not need to be extravagant to be effective – as we all know, it’s the thought that counts.
To offer a helping hand in showing your appreciation, we have created a form that will automatically send your teacher a message of gratitude. There is no limit on how many messages you can send – so don’t let that stop you from expressing all of your gratitude! Tell your teachers now and from years ago how the time they invested into you has benefited you. Your message will be delivered with care to your teacher and could also be featured on our website or social media channels.
If you are interested in doing more to recognize your teacher, we encourage you to check with your school or PTA to see if they have other special celebrations planned. At the very least, we hope you will take the time to send a message showing your support- it’s kind of like giving them a virtual high five 🖐🏾.
