Teacher Appreciation WeekVeneta Elementary is lucky enough to have wonderful teachers who work hard to provide their students with the best learning environment possible. Our teachers go above and beyond every single day. They are simply amazing and we are grateful for everything they do. If you get the chance this week, be sure to thank your child’s teacher and let them know how much you appreciate how hard they work all year long to help your child be successful. A word of thanks or even a note of thanks lets our teachers know that you know that they make a difference and that the work they do matters.
