I don’t think I ever remember celebrating Education week while in public school, but I did run across an article on the Grand Forks Herald Site mentioning it.
The celebration isn’t just limited to Grand Forks, North Dakota, however, as all schools across the nation are getting into the act as well. Starting November 15th and ending the 21st, schools will hold such events as open houses, parents’ day, honoring the support professionals (such as cafeteria workers and bus drivers) that keep the school running, and other various events. Sounds like it will be a fun week for the students and those that work in the school. I also really like the fact that they have a day for the support workers, seeing as they work just as hard (if not more so) than the educators, administrative staff and others. I especially like how they have a day dedicated to those that substitute teach classes. There’s more information on the variety of events taking place next week, along with posters and schedules that parents and others interested can print out on National Education Association’s website.
