A Much-Deserved Teacher Appreciation Week

This year’s Teacher Appreciation Week marked a special milestone for educators. It’s hard to imagine that it’s already been one complete calendar year since our teachers were tasked with transforming their traditional “in-person” classrooms to a 100% remote learning environment, and finding innovative ways to keep our scholars engaged and learning at a high level. And though many of us take it for granted, it’s so important to remember that all of this was happening during a global health emergency.

Fast forward to today… We’ve been able to safely welcome a portion of our students back to in-person learning, and we’re looking ahead with eager anticipation for the long-awaited return to 100% in-person learning in the 2021-22 school year. We’re so thankful for this incredible community of truly dedicated educators, staff, parents, and of course, our students.

Any teacher will tell you that teaching isn’t “easy,” but with great challenges come even greater rewards. Because our teachers regularly go above and beyond to ensure our students come first, during Teacher Appreciation Week, all of our schools went above and beyond for our teachers with a number of fun activities just for them. Teacher Appreciation Week included special sweets and treats, a curbside Caribbean Island luncheon provided by our friend Chef Aaron Black, as well as hourly surprise gift giveaways, hosted by Mrs. Green and Ms. Williams – to show our FAmily of educators lots of love for all that they do every day.
