From February 6 to 10, SJASD recognizes the contributions that educators, administrative and education assistants, educational clinicians and associates, nurses, bus drivers, custodians and all other school support staff make to students and school communities.
In addition to being proclaimed an official week by the Province of Manitoba, many schools throughout the Division celebrate Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week through small acts of appreciation, though others celebrate their staff at other times of the year.
At Stevenson-Britannia School, George Waters Middle School and Lincoln Middle School, treats are being brought in this week for staff. Members of the Stevenson-Britannia Parent Council have also encouraged fellow parents to consider showing their appreciation with small acts of gratitude.
At Hedges Middle School, staff are being treated to a staff appreciation breakfast.
Linwood School celebrated early, hosting a support staff lunch on February 3. They are celebrating with the community during the last full week of March.
Heritage School and Buchanan School have also chosen to celebrate staff in March.
Whether enjoying a small treat, breakfast or this message of thanks—we appreciate all the efforts of our staff to support teaching and learning in SJASD! Whether you are a teacher preparing for your next class, or an administrative professional working tirelessly to support school or divisional operations, thank you.
