This week, as Milwaukee Public Schools celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week, we recognize the hard work and many talents of our dedicated teachers who influence the hearts and minds of our young people every day.
As part of MPS’ weeklong celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, Dr. Driver, Superintendent of Schools, produced a video message to express her gratitude for the hard work teachers do every day to prepare our students for life-long success.
Many other activities are scheduled to show teachers our appreciation, including:
- Email message from Dr. Driver
- List of a variety of free and discounted offers from local retailers and cultural organizations (available on mConnect)
- Billboard messages located around the metro area, which have been donated by Lamar Advertising and Clear Channel
Digital billboards provided by Lamar Advertising can be seen at the following locations:
- I-94 at 84th Street
- I-94 at Rosedale
- Hwy. 45 at Silver Spring
- Oakland at North
- 16th at Greenfield
- I-43 at Walnut
Each teacher in the district will receive a certificate of appreciation signed by Dr. Driver and their school leader.
Families are encouraged to post photos and notes of appreciation to the MPS Tumblr account at milwaukeemps.tumblr.com.
