Teacher Appreciation Week
This year May 7-11, 2018 is the week set aside to recognize and celebrate teachers in our great state and country. Whereas our schools and community want to make our teachers feel appreciated and loved this week, I want each of our educators to know that they are truly appreciated for the meaningful work they do daily!
The dedication our teachers have to the success of our students is amazing. Each one makes a difference in the lives of our students, in the improvement of our community, and in the profession we proudly represent. I am grateful for the educators in Polk School District for not just showing up to a job, but for answering a calling.
We will soon be coming to the closing of yet another school year. As we do, I implore of everyone to see how your hard work and dedication is reflected in the success of our students and to know that you are greatly appreciated!
Laurie Atkins, Superintendent
