Honor An Educator During Teacher Appreciation Week

Let the Warsaw Education Foundation help you recognize your special educator during Teacher Appreciation Week by participating in the Honor an Educator Program.
The special Honor an Educator tribute packages are available now through Friday. This special gift for an educator provides the opportunity for people to show their appreciation for their work in the classroom, on the field or court and at after-school activities. Honor an Educator packages will be delivered to recipients during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2 through 6, according to a press release from WEF.
With a contribution to the Warsaw Education Foundation in honor of any Warsaw Community Schools’ educator, the Foundation will send an “Honored Educator” pennant and engraved pin for workplace display and your personal note to the honoree.
Educators can include teachers, bus drivers, secretaries, custodians, principals, cooks, school nurses or volunteers within WCS. Members of the community are invited to thank a friend or neighbor who is an employee of Warsaw Community Schools.
WCHS seniors may want to consider a tribute to an educator who has helped or encouraged them during their WCS career. WCS staff members may want to consider a “thank you” to a fellow staff member who has been a mentor to them or assisted them in some way. Retired teachers and staff may wish to offer words of encouragement to their former coworkers, the press release states.
Donations will be used to help fund the Red Apple Grant awards, which are monetary grants presented twice each year to Warsaw educators for projects that advance enrichment opportunities, provide innovative and inventive teaching, and promote academic exploration in WCS. The Foundation also relies on gifts to help fund the NEW Opportunities Workshop, Warsaw Schools’ Chess Tournaments, WCS Summer Enrichment Camp scholarships and the Partners in Education school/business mentoring programs. A community non-profit organization, the Warsaw Education Foundation champions academic innovation and excellence in Warsaw Community Schools, the release states.
