Kaylee Eckelman – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – November 12-16 marks American Education week, not only in LRHS, but in schools across America.
During this week, public school teachers and faculty are honored for their service and dedication they demonstrate teaching and inspiring students.
LRHS Principal Craig Little said it’s an important week.
“American Education Week is a great opportunity to recognize everything right in our schools,” he said. “Our staff, faculty and students deserve credit for all the hard work they do.”
LRHS assistant principal Jeannie Galindo agreed.
“Educators are among the most important people in our community and shape our future every day,” she said. “They’re the hardest working and least recognized profession you can think of. We have dedicated a week of significant events for them.”
LRHS celebrates American Education week by scheduling a week-long list of celebratory activities for staff and faculty.
“The staff and faculty are essential to LRHS because we’re a family we work together to do the best for the students and for each other,” said LRHS registrar Denise Turner.
To mark the start of American Education Week, Tuesday, Nov. 13, Mustangs are encouraged to write letters of appreciation to the teachers and faculty of LRHS. They are to fold their letters, writing both the person the letter is addressed to on the front as well as sign their name to the letter.
Wednesday, Nov. 14, has been deemed “school is cool day” in which faculty and staff will have the chance to receive free ice cream after school.
During all lunches, Thursday, Nov. 15, faculty and staff will be able to receive a free holiday meal in the cafeteria provided by Food Services.
To conclude American Education Week, teachers and faculty will receive a free muffin on Friday, Nov. 16.
All of these activities are scheduled to commemorate faculty and staff of LRHS for their hard work and dedication towards striving to make both the students of LRHS and the school achieve their best potential
“It’s very important to take a look at all the educators and note all the accomplishments and deeds that they do throughout the year,” discipline dean Jacob Sponsel said. “The teachers and faculty at LRHS are the leaders and set the rules and curriculum for our school.”
