Teacher Day is May 3

Tuesday, May 3, is National Teacher Day. The entire week (May 2-6) National Teacher Appreciation Week, sponsored by the National Education Association and the National PTA.

CEA recognizes the crucial role teachers play in making sure every child receives a quality public education and hopes administrators will take the time to convey to parents and the community the hard work educators do each day to make public schools great for every child. Have some fun with this special day and post these on your social media about a teacher who impacted YOU:

  • A picture of yourself with your favorite teacher, past or present;
  • A picture of your child with his or her teacher;
  • A picture of yourself holding a piece of paper with a simple message saying “Thank You!” to a teacher.

An important conversation

On March 23, members of CEA’s Social and Economic Justice Committee (SEJC) held their first “Community in Crisis Summit.” CEA members, parents, students and community organizers, led by CEA President Tracey Johnson, met at East HS to talk about the causes behind the violence that has rocked our community (and many others across the country). Columbus City Schools has lost 18 current and former students this school year alone. This is a tragedy that we must address. This is the first in a series of planned forums where SEJC will formulate a response and seek a solution. Interested in joining committed volunteers in helping our kids, their families and our entire community? Let CEA know, at 614-253-4731.
