EEF Wants To Help Recognize P-CCS Teachers and Staff With Thank a Teacher / Salute a Staff Campaign

Plymouth-Canton Community Schools is wrapping up a school year like no other. Whether students were in the Virtual Academy or the Safe Start Program, school looked very different.  We appreciate all of the teachers, staff, administrators, cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, custodial workers and bus drivers that put in extra hours and adapted to the needs of students. The EEF wants to help recognize those that went above and beyond this year.

Thank a Teacher / Salute a Staff is a way to say "thank you" and recognize those in P-CCS whose contributions touched us this year. Perhaps it is the teacher who held extra zoom calls after school, or the bus driver that greeted our students with a big smile behind their mask, or the Principal that offered families words of encouragement or comfort during the many transitions.

By donating to the the EEF in honor of this person or people, the gift will not only recognize their many contributions, but allow the EEF to continue to support teachers, staff and students in all of our buildings for years to come.

For a gift of $25, your teacher/staff member will receive a certificate from the EEF recognizing their contributions, receive recognition on our website and a huge shout out on our social media outlets.

Most importantly, the teacher or staff member will know you appreciated them.

Check donations can be made out to "Educational Excellence Foundation" and dropped off at the EEF office located at 454 S. Harvey Street, Plymouth MI 48170. If paying by check, please complete the google form found HERE and submit prior to dropping off the donation.

More information on Thank a Teacher / Salute a Staff can be found HERE

Questions can be directed to Gretchen Ward, Executive Director / or 734-416-2718.
