Teacher Appreciation Week

This year May 6-10, 2019 is the week set aside to recognize and celebrate our wonderful teaching staff. Our administrators, students and community want to make our teachers feel appreciated and loved not only this week, but for the meaningful work they do daily!

The dedication our teachers have to the success of our students is phenomenal.  I am amazed every day by the special gifts our teachers have in reaching our students.  Our educators are the heart and soul of each classroom and school.  Our teachers make a difference in the lives of our students, in the improvement of our community, and in the profession we proudly represent.  I am grateful for the educators in Polk School District for not just showing up to a job, but for answering a calling.  

Teachers, I implore of everyone to see how your hard work and dedication is reflected in the success of our students and to know that you are greatly appreciated!

Laurie Atkins, Superintendent
