Dear Students, Families, Staff, and Community Members:
Every month I write a letter outlining information about Popplewell Elementary School. This month of May, I would like to dedicate this monthly letter to the teachers and staff of Popplewell Elementary School! Moreover, while it is essential to recognize how much teachers matter, this past year is significant. Many educators have tirelessly worked to maintain a high quality of education for our children amid a pandemic.
Each year, we take one week to celebrate our teachers and what they do for our school. Popplewell shows appreciation to all the staff this week, May 3 – 7, 2021; we will honor our teachers and staff with many fun treats and gifts during Teacher Appreciation Week. We try at Popplewell to show appreciation throughout the year. However, this week we will bombard our staff with love and gratitude! Let us show our teachers and staff how much we love them and thank them for working with our children, above and beyond!
First and foremost, thanks to everyone for all the hard work and energy put into their jobs. At Popplewell, we see working, learning, and happy children in the halls, classroom, and playground. Education presents many obstacles; however, it is vital that we not lose the beautiful moments and memories that happen each day. These memories are because of our staff and their dedication to the students of Popplewell!
I believe that school is supposed to be fun; without dedicated staff, this would not happen. It starts with the classroom teacher. Their attitude generates a sense of well-being for all teams in the building. I am continuously impressed with the amount of time and energy teachers put into Popplewell Elementary Schools' success!
My most significant appreciation has been the positive attitudes, dedication, and respect our staff has for one another and their students. The team supports, appreciates, and enjoys each other and the students daily.
I want to thank you for all everyone does for our children. As adults, we ALL need appreciation for what we do, so I want to assure all that although working at Popplewell sometimes feels like an unappreciated effort day in and day out, it is NOT. I appreciate all those extra things; those extra hours worked to ensure learning and help our students succeed. I could not do this alone; it takes a whole "village" to educate our students, from
maintenance/custodial, kitchen, para's, specialists, block teachers, classroom teachers, other administrators, and office staff at Popplewell Elementary School! THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!
Again, let us show our teachers, staff, and all who have contact with kids how much we love them and thank them for working with our children by simply saying thanks!
