It is said that a teacher can have more influence on a child’s future than any other person outside of their family.
Craig County Public Schools said that it strives to hire teachers who will fill the lives of their students with dreams, vision and a great education.
This week, May 8-12, is Teachers Appreciation Week and students and families are encouraged to do something special for their teachers.
McCleary Elementary has designated each day with a suggestion of something special the students can do, sharing, “Please help us to show the McCleary teachers and staff how much we appreciate all they do for our kiddos!”
- Monday – “If teachers were flowers, we’d pick you.” – Bring them a flower.
- Tuesday – “Flowers help to color the world.” – Wear your teacher’s favorite color.
- Wednesday – “A gardener needs tools!” – Bring your teacher tools such as a pen, marker, crayon, etc. for the classroom.
- Thursday – “Teachers help to plant seeds of knowledge.” – Help to grow your classroom’s library with a new book.
- Friday – “Our classroom is in full bloom, thanks to you!”- Write your teacher a note or draw them a picture, thanking them for an awesome school year.
The administration decided this theme and added, “Teachers plant seeds that grow forever.”
In showing gratitude for teachers, it brings joy to their hearts and a sense of accomplishment to their “job.”
The high school students have planned similar ideas to show their teachers how much they appreciate them.
The definition of a teacher is one who teaches or instructs, especially as a profession.
However, it is said that the role of a teacher goes deeper, to inspire, motivate, encourage and to educate learners.
The administration staff and families in Craig County seem to always try to show their appreciation to the teachers in the schools.
This year, those in Craig County are encouraged to join in on this special week and share their appreciation, regardless of if they have kids in the school system.
