As we drop off our children in the morning, please remember who takes care of your child(ren) while you are away at work, school, etc. It is a very dedicated staff that work hours upon hours weekly to provide the best education they can to your child.
I believe that sometimes we overlook the fact that our children spend a third of their day with those who are underpaid and underappreciated by most. The impression that they put on our children will last a lifetime.
Please remember to at least drop by and tell your teacher how much they are appreciated, or even send a short and sweet note in your child's bookbag.
And please do remember those in the office, too. They are just as important as the teachers. Sometimes a little appreciation goes a long way.
