Hampton Education Foundation assists schools for Teacher Appreciation Week
The Hampton Education Foundation (HEF) awarded $3,525 to a total of eight schools to assist with recognizing their teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.
The money is being used by the schools to fund recognitions for their teachers with things such as a relaxation day (complete with chair massages), lunch, small thank you gifts, and special treats.
Below are thank you messages received from the schools:
