Dear Parents and Guardians:

This week is the beginning of Teacher Appreciation Week for teachers across the nation.  Please join us in celebrating our teachers.  On behalf of the Board of Education and my administrative team, I want to personally thank the teachers in Dolton School District 149 for their dedication and commitment to educating all children.

Over the years being a teacher has become quite challenging, but our teachers have continued to work hard to meet every child where they are currently functioning. Every day they educate, innovate and encourage the students to do their very best.

We recognize the many talents and gifts our teachers possess.  Please take a few minutes to review a few simple ways to acknowledge a teacher this week:

  • You can send a thank-you note. It may seem simple, but acknowledging your child’s teacher in the form of a personal card or letter can mean more than any tangible gift.
  • Write a letter and allow your child to write one too—this allows your child to practice writing skills and provides an opportunity to consider the impact of his/her education.
  • Tweet for teacher! Use social media to thank your child’s teacher publicly and highlight what they have done throughout the year.
  • Parents and students can offer their time to help teachers reorganize materials and supplies that have come undone throughout the year.

Thanking you in advance for helping teachers feel appreciated! 

We Believe. . . Excellence, Humanization and Pride!


Dr. Shelly Davis-Jones
