Say 'thanks' at teacher appreciation week

"Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others, it is the only means." Jamestown teachers demonstrate this "theory" by Albert Einstein every day. This spring, eight teachers gave up a Saturday and several evenings to join school committee members, administrators, parents and community members in creating a strategic plan for the Jamestown Schools. From that team came a plan based on partnership.

Jamestown teachers and staff are the heart of the Jamestown School-Community Partnership. They actively partner with students, parents, administration and the town to provide a healthy, challenging learning environment in our schools.

May 5 is National Teacher Appreciation Day. The Town Council has proclaimed May 3-9 as "Teacher Appreciation Week" in Jamestown. Please join the School Committee in saluting Jamestown's teachers and gratefully acknowledging their many significant contributions to public education.
