Dear Salina School Community,
The first full week of May is Teacher Appreciation Week. On behalf of everyone at Salina Intermediate, I would like to express my deep gratitude to our teachers for the work they do each day to ensure the success of all our students.
Our teachers provide the high-quality instruction and support that our students need to be successful. They deliver culturally relevant teaching and learning designed to keep our students engaged and on track.
But we all know teachers do so much more. In partnership with administrators and staff, teachers serve as mentors and a vital part of the support system to meet the needs of the whole child. They collaborate with parents and caregivers to keep families informed and contribute to a school climate that makes our students feel safe and valued.
This past year, our teachers have also gone above and beyond to quickly learn and adapt to distance learning. Many of them have found creative and caring ways to stay connected to students, extending a culture of kindness and respect beyond our school and into our students’ homes. We know they have done so while also tending to their own families.
We can all look back and remember a great teacher who touched our lives. With that in mind, please be sure to thank our teachers and celebrate them this week and beyond.
