Campbell Elementary Weekly Update

May 2, 2021

Greetings Parents,

This week, we are celebrating our teachers for National Teacher Appreciation Week. Normally, we acknowledge them for just being good teachers. This year, we can recognize them for being resilient, passionate, and strong during the pandemic. The past year has been a first for all of us; but our teachers have navigated the unprecedented challenges and continued to serve our school community with pride, grace, and empathy. Here's the link to the flyer with some ideas to recognize your child's teacher.

Campbell Cougars Read
