Behind every successful Milwaukee Public Schools student there is a dedicated teacher providing guidance and direction. During Teacher Appreciation Week, please join Milwaukee Public Schools in celebrating the hard work of our teachers who shape the minds of our young people.
MPS’ weeklong celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week includes a special video message from Superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver, expressing her thanks to teachers for all they do to prepare young people to be life-long learners who are ready for success in college and career.
Many other activities are planned to show teachers our appreciation, including:
- An email message of thanks from Dr. Driver
- A list of various free and discounted offers from local retailers and cultural organizations (available on mConnect)
- Billboard messages located around the metro area, which have been donated by Clear Channel
- MPS Proud window stickers and lapel pins for all staff
Families are encouraged to submit photos and notes of appreciation to the MPS Tumblr account at milwaukeemps.tumblr.com.
Signs of appreciation for use by students and families can be downloaded here.
