Teachers and school staff spend countless hours building into the lives of our most precious resources. These individuals can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning! Home and School Associations in Prince Edward Island will join together the week of February 12 - 16 to honour and celebrate the people who work with our children on a daily basis to inspire and prepare them for life.
Parents, students and community members have been celebrating Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week right across Canada since 1988.
In addition to honouring all school staff who work with our students in the education system, the P.E.I. Home and School Federation takes the opportunity during Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week each year to highlight the outstanding contributions of individuals with the Home and School Federation’s Extra Mile Award. Awards will be presented to those who model what it means to go above and beyond the call of duty in their professions.
“Teachers, principals, administrative assistants, custodians, librarians, educational assistants, guidance counselors, youth workers, resource teachers, and volunteers work hard to make our school communities thrive,” comments Lisa MacDougall, President P.E.I. Home and School Federation. “Through their own commitment to lifelong learning, they inspire students to continue learning and make a lasting contribution to their lives.”
During the week of February 12-16, let’s take a moment to thank school teachers and staff!
