As part of Teacher Appreciation Week, Suffolk Public Schools is supporting the 2018 “Thank a Teacher” campaign, led by the Virginia PTA and the Virginia Lottery.
The campaign encourages students, parents and members of the community to send thank-you notes to teachers across the Commonwealth to recognize their hard work and dedication. Last year, more than 30,000 thank-you notes were sent to Virginia’s public school teachers.
We hope you will join us and take part in “Thank a Teacher” by recognizing even more teachers this year. Visit Virginia Lottery’s Thank a Teacher website: http://thankateacherva.com/ to send an electronic thank-you note to a deserving teacher in your life or check with your individual schools to see what they have planned – many PTAs are hosting thank-you note-writing stations and events!
- Throughout the week, schools will be honoring classroom teachers with a variety of events.
- The division’s Teacher of the Year Banquet is Tuesday, May 1. This invitation-only celebration recognizes each school’s Teacher of the Year, as well as the City-Wide Teachers of the Year,
- Thursday, May 10 is Teacher Assistant Day: Please take a moment on this day to show the teacher assistants at your school how much they mean to you.
