Proviso Township High Schools District 209 will be joining with school districts across the country to say "thank you" to teachers during National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 5 to 9.
Every year during National Teacher Appreciation Week, District 209 works to say thanks and show appreciation for the great work that teachers throughout the district do each day.
"Teachers make it possible for students to thrive and to pursue their dreams," said Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, superintendent of District 209. "We want to make sure that our teachers know how much we appreciate all that they do and to celebrate what they do.
Throughout the week, the District will host activities to celebrate our teachers. Refreshments will be made available to teachers on several days. In addition, individual school activities will be held throughout the week to honor our teachers.
There are a variety of ways that everyone can help celebrate teachers at your school. You can:
"Too often, we get busy in our day-to-day work and forget the little things that matter, such as giving a simple ‘thank you’ to those in our profession," Dr. Collins-Hart said. "Thank you, teachers, for all you do to help our students excel and our school system to improve. You are appreciated."
