Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation WeekTeacher Appreciation Week originated in 1953, and teachers have Eleanor Roosevelt to thank for its inception. Roosevelt convinced Congress that there needed to be a specific day on which teachers were recognized.

National Teacher Day was celebrated on March 7th until 1984, when it was moved to May. Behind the move was the National Parent Teacher Association and, instead of just one day, they named the entire first week of May to be Teacher Appreciation Week. The NEA followed suit the next year and held National Teacher Appreciation Day on the Tuesday of the week.

This year Colby Public Schools wants to recognize the hard work and extra efforts our teachers have put into this year.  Thank you for everything you do to "prepare all students to be life-long learners and responsible citizens."
