Did you thank a teacher this week?

Teacher Appreciation Week 2024

Superintendent Dr. Suzanne Johnson presents Ellen Smith with a Very Special Teacher certificate.
  • Dr. Suzanne Johnson presented Glenbrook Elementary School teacher, Ellen Smith, with a Very Special Teacher certificate. The surprise visit from the Superintendent to Mrs. Smith's class was part of Teacher Appreciation Week 2024, and the U-46 Foundation campaign in which district families could honor a special teacher by making a donation. The U-46 Educational Foundation grant program, entirely funded by donations, lets teachers apply for classroom supplies and programs that aren't covered under the regular U-46 budget.

    At right are some of the messages that were relayed to teachers on handmade cards, which were delivered to their schools. The personalized cards were created for anyone who wished to donate to the U-46 Foundation in honor of a special teacher.
