Tomorrow kicks off Teacher Appreciation Week and we have a lot to celebrate at Whitefish! We have the best teachers in the entire country (it is true, I have checked!) This year, to help celebrate our teachers we are asking that all parents make sure their students get a good nights sleep, all students show up to school ready to learn, and all community members take a minute and thank someone you know that is a teacher. Not all heroes wear capes; some stand in front of the future everyday, guiding them to become great people!
