Monday: AEW Kick-Off: Red for Ed: Please wear red to show your support for and pride in being a part of education in our schools.
Tuesday: Parents Day: Staff baby pictures: Check out the picture bulletin boards in the elementary and high school wings and try to guess who's who. *More info to come.*
Wednesday: Education Support Professionals Day: Dress as your favorite super hero to recognize these super heroes in our school. Also, bring a little something extra for the Day County Food Pantry in recognition of all the extra things our ESPs do for our students. Teachers might consider giving extra credit to those who participate. *More info to come.*
Thursday: Educator for a Day: Students dress as teachers, professionals, careers, whatever they want to be when they grow up. Teachers, find ways to involve your students in classroom instruction, invite non-educators to teach or present to your class, etc.
