Week (AEW) spotlights the importance of providing every child in America with a
quality public education from kindergarten through college, and the need for
everyone to do his or her part in making public schools great." (National
Education Association website,). AE Week is coming up November 12-16, 2018.
As organizer for the event, the CEA Professional Relations Committee, which
includes, Carol Bader, Betsy Crites, Amanda Moore, Jackie Mertz, Brittany Green
and me would like to congratulate everyone, including board members, teachers,
administrators, support staff, substitutes and volunteers at Celina Schools for
all they do for Celina School children.
Activities planned in the buildings include: candy treats
for all staff; posters; morning announcements; and encouraging emails. Celina
Education Association also is sponsoring 5 - $100 mini-grants to teachers who
submit an idea for a special lesson or activity they intend to use in their
classroom and need some financial backing. Applications will be available that
week. Winners will be announced after the first of the year. At that time, there
will be a check presentation at a board meeting so we can all see who won and
hear about their projects.
In addition, the local Parent Organization CCSCO plans to
provide some evening treats during both nights of Parent Teacher conferences in
November for the staffs of Primary, Elementary and Intermediate, a wonderful
and deeply appreciated contribution!
Mayor Jeff Hazel recently presented a Proclamation for American Education Week
to Dr. Schmiesing.
So in conclusion, we are looking forward to American
Education Week and thank everyone who helps make our schools great!
