This week, teachers and other staff members are receiving hundreds of thank you cards, video messages and more from appreciative students and families, as they join Bend-La Pine Schools to celebrate staff members as part of National Teacher Appreciation Week May 3-7.
This year, Bend-La Pine Schools invited community members to send staff members a thank you card, using a district-created form. To date, students and parents have shared more than 325 notes of appreciation with staff members through the form, including examples:
“Our teachers and other staff members have given their all to provide consistency and support for our students to help them navigate this school year, which has been filled with uncertainty and challenges. Seeing this outpouring of love and appreciation for our staff is truly heartwarming,” said Interim Superintendent Lora Nordquist.
Families who wish to send a Bend-La Pine Schools’ thank you note can do so through the end of the day Wednesday, May 5. Send a note of thanks: bls.fyi/staffappreciation
