Imagine playing a human version of The Game of Life, and there you have The School of Hard Knocks!
The School of Hard Knocks is a volunteer event hosted annually by the WLC. Eighth graders of Philo Hill learn difficult lessons about the “real world.”
Students are assigned a job along with a salary. From there, they are faced with choices. Choices around their living situation, transportation, insurances, phone and cable bills, which bank to use, and lots more.
National Teacher Appreciation Day, also known as National Teacher Day, is observed on the Tuesday of the first full week in May. This day is part of Teacher Appreciation Week, which is the first full week in May of each year.
The National Education Association describes National Teacher Day “as a day for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives”.
Teachers play a critical role in educating and shaping our children: the future leaders of our country. They are kind, patient, hard-working, dedicated and understanding professionals that mold our children’s lives in a positive direction. We entrust our children with the teachers, and they affect their lives on a daily basis.
It is time to say “Thank You” to the special teachers that you know. Let them know that they are appreciated for all that they do. Use #TeacherAppreciationDay to post on social media.
