Explorers,

We LOVE Teachers!
Get emoji-tional with us and #ThankAWCPSSTeacher during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 4-8, 2020!

Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day—their immense work and impact moves us beyond words, so we need emojis to say how we feel. And with the abrupt end to the physical school year, our teachers have done even more to continue education with virtual classrooms and learning at home lessons. All to ensure every student has the tools they need to reach their full potential.

So, let’s all shower teachers in appreciation and share how we love (❤️) like (👍), celebrate (🎉) and care for (😍) our teachers!

It's in these challenging times that we truly recognize and appreciate how our nation’s educators play such a pivotal role in our children’s lives—inspiring a lifelong love of learning and discovery and making a difference in their well-being and long-term success.

Here are a few ideas to celebrate our teachers this week:

Email a thank you note or have your child create a card or picture and email a picture of it to his or her teacher.

Send an E-gift card. Many businesses allow you to purchase gift cards online and send them via email.
Have your student create a video message and email it to his or her teacher.

Many teachers are using Google Meet to meet with students during remote learning. Have your student create a thank you sign to hold up during the Meet or help your student come up with some words of appreciation to share during the Meet.

Share what makes your child’s teacher so special on social media and tag our school @EastGarner ES and use the hashtag #ThankAWCPSSTeacher.

Our teachers have been working very hard to implement remote learning for students and many of them also are supporting learning for their own children at the same time. I encourage you to take a moment next week to recognize them for all they are doing during these challenging times.

My Best, Mrs. Graf
