By Anderson County Schools
Students across Anderson County Schools will be using a “Lion King” theme to honor and thank their principals during the month of February 2014. Various activities are being planned to let principals know how much their hard work is appreciated. Student members of the A Team at each school are responsible for leading the show of appreciation and for getting all students involved.
In a society where thanks and appreciation are often overlooked, the students of Anderson County Schools are learning first-hand what it means to have an attitude of gratitude. There are eight different appreciation days scheduled throughout the year to honor and celebrate various employees. Each of the appreciation days are a part of UTrust’s Employee Appreciation Program designed to teach students about gratitude using fun themes to show thanks.
Director of Schools Larry M. Foster and the Anderson County Board of Education recognize that principals are vital to the overall success of the schools. “Our Anderson County principals are the best and we want to show our appreciation for their leadership. We do not take our principals for granted and want to be sure they know how much they mean to us all.”
Although the appreciation days are led by students, there are also opportunities for the community to join in. For information on how you can help show gratitude to school employees, contact your local schools or system administrator.
