Dear School Community,
 
As we approach the end of the school year, I remain more confident than ever that we are moving in the right directions.  I am most impressed with our educators – teachers, administrators, and parents -- who work to support the children and the district.  I hope you agree, we are most effective when we share mutual respect and celebrate our special role in teaching our children and moving our students forward.  This week is teacher appreciation week and we should all take this time to appreciate the work of our teachers. As I walk the halls and meet with our teachers, it is obvious they love to teach and put their heart and soul in each student; they never give up, they inspire our students, ignite their passions and empower them to become critical thinkers. Our school administrators are thankful for our teachers as well:
 
New Brunswick Board of Education
We want to personally thank the teachers for their dedication and commitment to educating all children.  We know that teaching can become quite challenging, but we know that we have the best teachers that will provide the optimal learning environment for our students to succeed.  Thank you, teachers, for everything you do to make the New Brunswick School District a better place every day of the year.

At Paul Robeson Community School for the Arts, we appreciate the efforts of all the staff members in our school as we work on a daily basis to integrate Arts into our students' academic experiences.

Our students are making connections between the Arts and their daily lives, we look forward to more exciting performances and displays of art as our theme school moves forward.

McKinley K-Center Administration
Educating our youngest learners is one of the most influential works that can be done, and all of you do it well. Too often, your diligence goes unnoticed; however, your work is the most crucial part of our students' development. Moreover, I would like to emphatically express how valuable your work is to our students as their first educators outside of the home. You have the task of starting their journey to greatness. In the same way, the foundation you provide to our students is crucial to creating lifelong learners. Without a doubt, I appreciate and salute you for all that you do to make a difference in each and every one of our youngest learners. Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Woodrow Wilson School Administration
Congratulations to perhaps the most honorable profession known to man. You are responsible for shaping the lives of every past Nobel Peace Prize winners, doctor, lawyer, nurse and all of our past and present President’s. Yes you, that Kindergarten teacher who has the huge responsibility of taking a child from their parents care to the first portal into the world of education. To the middle school teacher who finally has that 6th-grade student, you watched grow over the years to finally be able to mold them for a better future. Just know that every child we educate has a memory chip dedicated to the appreciation of every teacher that touched their lives. This week is dedicated to you, the Teachers of America. Thank you for contributing to our future.
 
McKinley Community School Administration
This week we celebrate Teacher Appreciation. Although it is honorable that we set this time aside for you, the irony is that one day is not nearly enough to Thank You for all that you do every day!  As a teacher, you serve as a role model for students and inspire them to reach their potential. You are a dream maker, a cheerleader, a motivator. You plant the seeds of curiosity and through your kindness and encouragement, help our students grow.  You represent what is best in this world even though your value is not recognized as often as it should. You sacrifice your talents, time, and gifts for results that you may never see. Please know that words alone cannot articulate the gratitude we have for all you do. I hope this message reminds you of your WHY and lets you know that although we don’t acknowledge you every day, we know you are part of an elite group of people…You are a Teacher!!  Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!
 
New Brunswick Adult Learning Center
The New Brunswick Adult Learning Center has a unique set of teachers who are fully committed to our school.  Our teachers come from diverse experiences, yet they share many of the same traits: desire, understanding, and caring.  Their desire for our students to succeed, their understanding of where our students have been and where they can go, and their caring nature help the students take steps to achieve their goals.
