Teacher Appreciation Week and STAAR

Important Dates in May and June

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teachers are real life superheroes. They educate, innovate, encourage and support. Every day they touch the lives of millions of children and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.

Take the time to celebrate these real life superheroes during May 2nd - May 6th.

How You Can Show Appreciation?

  • Show your support for the tremendous work teachers do by volunteering in a classroom.
  • Tell us on Twitter about a teacher who had an impact on your life and how you plan to celebrate teachers during the week. Lake Olympia FBISD @LakeOlyMS
