National Education Week
Wednesday, November 16, 2011
To help celebrate the 90th National Education Week, which is held Nov. 13-19, the CTA (California Teachers Association) will be providing pencils for all students in the district. In addition, California Elementary School computer teacher Stacy Allee assigned some of her students to type a letter of appreciation to a teacher of their choice.
"American Education Week reminds us that our public schools are a shared responsibility," said NEA President Dennis Van Roekel. "Each of us must do our part to support student growth and achievement. All of us - educators, students, parents and communities - must work together to transform our schools so every student has access to a great public school."
American Education Week is used to secure community support for measures that will improve public school, help students recognize the importance of American Education, improve staff morale and enthusiasm, and increase parental involvement.
