Teacher Appreciation week is a time of the year when parents and PTA groups thank educators who are making a difference in the lives of our children and community at large, with small gifts of appreciation. There are 1000+ teachers in our area who are working at Title 1 schools. Generally speaking, Title 1 schools are serving the children of economically challenged families and communities.
We realize Title 1 teachers are making a big difference in the lives of our children and community at large. We also realize these teachers deal with some tough situations on a daily basis. Our goal with this initiative is to simply come alongside these teachers and provide lunch, snacks, small gifts and t-shirts with school logos as a way of saying, "We appreciate and value the difference you're making in the lives of children in our community."
This initiative began in 2016 and has continued every year. In 2019, we pulled together people and resources to appreciate the faculty and staff at 23 of the most challenged Title 1 schools in our area. Needless to say, these educators felt appreciated and valued.
**Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Teacher Appreciation initiative was cancelled; and all of the resourcess were reallocated to support our Drop-Knock-Leave food relief initiative for students in need and families in need of food assistance."
As the COVID19 saga continues to unfold, it's become apparent that healthcare workers and TEACHERS have become the heroes of our day. Together, we will make sure the Teacher Appreciation Initiative happen again during the first week of May in 2021! Your donation to this effort will support a huge thank you to our local educators. We will post volunteer opportunities in late March. Together, we can do this!
