Celebrating American Education Week
Americans throughout our nation are celebrating American Education Week (Nov. 16-20). American Education Week is an opportunity to thank your child's teacher, the counselor who helps guide your child, the assistant who welcomes you to the front office, the school nutrition worker who serves your child lunch, the bus driver who is the first one and the last one to greet your child each school day, and all public education employees who play a role in helping children succeed.
The National Education Association has designated different activities for each day of this week. On Thursday, Nov. 19, public educators across the nation invite community members to visit schools and "walk in their shoes," learning more about the role of what educators do to make sure students are successful.
At San José Unified School District (SJUSD), parents, community members, elected officials, friends and neighbors, and all stakeholders have two opportunities to learn more about the work of its 3,000 public servants to eliminate the opportunity gap and provide all students with the finest 21st Century education.
