Teacher Appreciation Week continues! Show some love on social media using #LoveSCSTeachers.

Students, parents and employees across the 901 and in cities across the country have been expressing their love and support for educators this week. Yesterday, six SCS Superhero teachers received $100 Amazon gift cards, thanks to our HR team. Today and tomorrow, teachers will be participating in dress-up days for a chance to win more great prizes, so keep an eye out for their best looks on social media. If you haven't already, please take a minute to thank a special teacher in your life - one you work with, one who teaches your child or one who has made an impact in your life. Don't forget to use the hashtag, #LoveSCSTeachers .
Buildings may be empty, but class is still in session
