Council honors teachers
Town Councilors issued their annual Jamestown Teacher Appreciation proclamation on Monday and designated May 7 through May 11 as the week this year "to pay tribute to our teachers."
The councilors cited teachers in the island's two schools as worthy of "high public esteem, reflecting the value the town places on public education." They said Jamestown teachers "are committed to nurturing the potential and individuality of each student." The proclamation cited the mission of the local school community "to prepare all students to be productive citizens."
The councilors concluded, "Few other professionals touch the lives of so many in such powerful and lasting ways" as teachers do.
