SDMA Teacher Appreciation Week

SDMA Teacher Appreciation Week
Posted on 05/04/2022

Dear SDMA Families and Staff,

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week in the School District of the Menomonie Area!  Please join me in thanking the many wonderful teachers, paraeducators, and other school district employees who play a critical role in teaching the children in our schools each and every day. This week is a great time to let your children's teachers know how much they are appreciated.

Some ideas from the National PTA for how families can thank a teacher include:

  • Get creative! And post how you honor your teachers using #ThankATeacher
  • Email heartfelt letters, cards and messages of appreciation
  • Create artwork, poems and video messages to celebrate your teachers
  • Send your teacher a virtual award
  • On Thursday, upload a #TBT of you and your favorite teacher and thank them using #ThankATeacher

While the school district provides special recognition for all school staff members right before winter break, the building-level celebrations led by local Parent Teacher Organizations and the recognitions from individual families for Teacher Appreciation Week are very much appreciated. 

Have a wonderful week, and please remember that now is a great time to #ThankATeacher.

Joe Zydowsky
