Teacher Appreciation Day
This event is aimed at helping all Pre-K through 12th grade teachers stock their classrooms with the supplies they need for the year ahead. An often quoted statistic is that teachers spend between $400 and $600 per year out of their own paycheck for classroom supplies. Let’s all come together and help eliminate the need for these dedicated professionals to pay to work at their job! Sign up today to host a booth and offer supplies and various other items to the teachers. We’ll supply you with a wish list of needed items. We would also like to help promote connections and relationships being made between the teachers and businesses within the community that night. The teachers are also interested in learning how you can help throughout the year in their classrooms. Do you have someone who would make a great guest speaker on a specific topic? SHARE that information with the teachers. They are always open to gaining new resources! For teachers new to our area, please also bring information sheets about your business events and service organizations that have any events that might interest teachers and their families throughout the year.
At the 2019 event we had over 100 teachers attend, representing five different school districts (Fairfield, Maharishi, Van Buren, Pekin and Cardinal) and approximately 30 businesses who participated. With the vast amount of positive feedback we received we anticipate the event to be even bigger and better in the years to come!
