There’s no doubt that teachers are some of the hardest working individuals out there. Teachers have such a large impact on the lives of children and help shape them into the adults they turn out to be. They have so many challenges they have to navigate, especially during this past year with the pandemic in full swing. Teachers have had extra duties given to them while they themselves have to worry about staying healthy.
The week of May 3 through 7 is Teacher Appreciation Week, with May 4 designated National Teacher Appreciation Day. The Parent Teacher Organizations at Buford City Schools always go out of their way to treat the teachers during this week and at other times throughout the year. This year was no exception.
At Buford Elementary, the PTO treated their teachers to popsicles from King of Pops, beverages from Black Bean Coffee, teas from Green City Nutrition, breakfast from Oh Sweet Bakery and lunch from Rico’s World Kitchen. The teachers at the Academy were treated to teas from Green City Nutrition and had lunch catered by Mooney’s. The PTO at Buford Middle School had lunch catered by The Varsity. BES and BA gave the teachers folding chairs as gifts. BES also had a raffle and gave each teacher a gift card.
Those were just a few of the many things the PTO organizations and the parents of Buford City Schools did to show the teachers just how much they are appreciated.
To all of the teachers out there, thank you for your unwavering commitment to shaping the minds of the children in our community. Teachers are superhuman individuals, capable of producing miracles EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
