Teacher Appreciation Week

Our teachers impact the lives of our children far beyond the classroom. The vision they help to instill in our children will last a lifetime. We’re asking the community to take a moment to write a note of thanks to our WS/FC School Teachers letting them know how much we appreciate the hard work they put into teaching our children each day.

Please mail your notes of thanks to our office: United Way of Forsyth County 301 N. Main Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27101 from April 15-May 2nd. We will hand deliver your notes of thanks to our partner schools during Teacher Appreciation Week May 6-May 10.

Let’s show our thanks and gratitude for our teachers!
