Thank a Teacher This Week

It is that time of year when we express our thanks and gratitude to the teachers and staff for the important role they play in the lives of our children.

Some of our schools celebrated last week, while others will participate in National Teacher Appreciation Week this week. It doesn’t matter when you celebrated as long as you do!

Please take the time to show teachers just how much they are valued by our school community for their great work throughout the year. While baked goods are often a go-to treat, here are some other fun ways to show your appreciation:

  • Have your child hand write a letter or draw a picture expressing thanks
  • Write a letter to your child’s teachers about the impact they have had on your child
  • Volunteer in your child’s classroom or to do a task that you can complete at home
  • Tell us what makes your teachers special on ACPS Twitter and Facebook pages so we can help spread the word using the hashtag #ThxACPSTeachers
  • Give a bouquet of flowers to brighten their day
  • Tell a teacher ‘thank you’ in person

How ever you choose to do it, make a special point this week to thank your teachers.

Here is how some of our schools honored teachers last week:

The ACPS 2020 Strategic Plan outlines a specific goal that calls for an exemplary staff. ACPS pledges to recruit, develop, support and retain a staff that meets the needs of every student.
