Posted on 05/04/2016

Five teachers were honored at the McMinnville Noon Rotary Club meeting today, recognized as Teachers of the Year.

The teachers, (from left) Heather Thomas, Darla Smith, Leah Spencer, Robyn Mikunda and Erin Brisbin, represent elementary, middle and high school levels. The teachers were nominated by their principals and voted on by staff at each school.

The School Board also proclaimed this week to be Teacher Appreciation, in honor of all teachers across the district. The proclamation reads:

WHEREAS, today's teachers mold our future citizens through their guidance and education, and

WHEREAS, today's teachers encounter students of widely differing backgrounds and abilities, and

WHEREAS, our society expects public education to provide quality education services to all children, no matter what their backgrounds or abilities, and

WHEREAS, our country's future depends, in large measure, upon the education our youth receive today, and

WHEREAS, our community recognizes that its teachers are providing quality education services to our children,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT PROCLAIMED THAT the School Board of McMinnville School District No. 40 designates the week of May 2-6, 2016, as Teacher Appreciation Week in this community, and

BE IT FURTHER PROCLAIMED THAT the McMinnville School Board calls on the community to join with it in personally expressing appreciation to our teachers for a job well done.
