Teacher|Staff Appreciation Week

May 1-5, 2017

Teachers are real life superheroes. They educate, innovate, encourage and support. Every day they touch the lives of millions of children and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.

Take the time to celebrate these real life superheroes during PTA Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week, May 1-5, 2017.

Parent/student letters will be sent home within the next few days to provide further information about this special week! teacher_appreciation_week

About Teacher Appreciation Week : Since 1984, National PTA has designated the first week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating our children.

PTA events at the national, state and local levels celebrate the outstanding contributions teachers make. We are also proud to recognize teachers and administrators with awards and grants.
