Kennedy Celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

Students pose with teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Teacher Appreciation week begins on Monday, May 2 and will conclude Friday May 6. Teacher Appreciation Week became a national holiday in 1944 as a way to honor and thank educators all over the nation. Since then teachers have been able to receive free gifts and discounts from business and students as a way of showing their appreciation for what they do.   

In an email to Kennedy families, principal Jason Kline said, “I would encourage students (and parents) to consider writing a nice note or email to a teacher or two (or all) this week!”

So if you have a special teacher that goes above and beyond for your class, show them a little extra appreciation during this week.
