Teachers and other staff members in the School District of La Crosse were treated to fruit, donuts and muffins — plus a hearty helping of “thank you” messages from parents, students and the community on May 7 during the fifth annual Thank a Teacher Day in La Crosse Public Schools.
Before school, volunteers organized by the La Crosse Public Education Foundation made special deliveries to 15 locations, providing muffins, donuts and fresh fruit for more than 1,000 employees as part of Thank a Teacher Day. In addition to teachers, the event recognizes the teaching assistants, food service staff, custodians, administrative assistants, nurses, principals and other staff who make a difference every day in the lives of La Crosse school children.
Treats were provided via grant support from the La Crosse Community Foundation’s Carol Taebel “Thank a Teacher” Fund. Other community volunteers participated, including representatives from businesses involved in the Adopt-a-School program created by LPEF and the District. Other participants came from the District Wide Parent Committee and the La Crosse Area Retired Educators’ Association, as well as Rotary Interact Clubs from Central and Logan high schools.
