Congratulations to our 15 WINNERS from Teacher Appreciation Week Dress-Up Days!

Great prizes were up for grabs during Teacher Dress-Up Days May 7-8. For "Getaway Day," we asked teachers to show us what they want to do most when the quarantine ends, like go to the movies, concerts, sports, travel or dining out. For "Quaran-Talent Day," we asked teachers to show us the coolest, craziest and most impressive new hobbies, tricks, talents and projects they've come up with while being stuck at home. Winners were voted on by the Teacher Weekly committee -- and remember, you had to use the hashtag to be included. We'll be emailing winners directly this week with details on receiving prizes. Thanks to everyone who participated!
