Teacher Appreciation Week is being celebrated throughout the Puyallup School District May 7-11.

The Puyallup School Board unanimously approved a proclamation at its March 26 meeting designating May 7-11 as Teacher Appreciation Week. The local recognition coincides with both the state and national Teacher Appreciation Week.

Board President Greg Heath presented the proclamation to Puyallup Education Association President Karen McNamara on behalf of teachers and other non-supervisory certificated staff.

The proclamation states in part that teachers serve in partnership with parents to ensure the appropriate education for all children and help students understand the importance of work and their contribution to society.
