The week of Nov. 13-17 is American Education Week across the country. During this week, millions of educators, parents, students, and community leaders will join the National Education Association in raising awareness about the critical need to provide every child with a quality public education.
Here at South Knox Schools, the high school Spanish Club will be recognizing EVERYONE involved in the education of our students. They will be giving a small token of appreciation to cooks, custodians, aides, bus drivers, teachers, administrators, etc.
It will help to reinforce American Education Week's theme, "Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility." The theme represents NEA's vision of calling upon all Americans to do their part in making public schools great for every child so that they can grow and achieve in the 21st century.
The Spanish Club would like these individuals to know how important their role is in educating students and to thank them for their dedication!
So take a moment this week and say thanks to anyone involved in the education of a child.
