National Teacher Appreciation Week

National Teacher Appreciation Week
Posted on 05/06/2019

Teacher Appreciation Week is Monday, May 6 - Friday, May 10, and National Teacher Appreciation Day is Tuesday, May 7, 2019.  According to information from Hallmark and the National Parent Teacher Association, people in the United States started celebrating National Teacher Day in 1953, when Eleanor Roosevelt persuaded Congress to set aside a day to recognize educators. Then, in 1984, the National PTA designated the first week of May as a special time to honor those who lend their passion and skills to educating our children.

In the School District of the Menomonie Area, we are very fortunate to be living in an area very rich in educational opportunities. Between the wonderful teachers who work in our school district, to the educators working at Chippewa Valley Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Stout, all of these teachers have a tremendous impact in our schools and in our community. 

It takes a special person to be a teacher, and the impact that teachers have on our lives is huge. Not only do our teachers do a great job in the classroom, but many also serve as coaches, advisors, mentors, and volunteers for various school and community groups. Teachers in the Menomonie Area, and all across our country, deserve our sincere thanks and gratitude for all of their great work. Please join me this week and beyond in thanking our teachers for all that they do for our children, our schools, and our community.

Have a great week!
