It’s Teacher Appreciation Week!
Wow, do we need to send some extra love to our teachers this year! The Seasonal Roots community feels so connected with teachers. Among our team members and customers, many of us in the Seasonal Roots family are teachers. And many of us are parents with kids in the “classroom” — in all the forms that it took this year.
The past year has posed unending challenges for all of us – especially our teachers.
To respond to the shifting safety protocols, teachers had to…
- Change their curriculum weekly (if not daily… or hourly.)
- Teach and motivate students online and in the classroom (often at the same time.)
- Look out for, and advocate for, students facing extra family challenges because of the pandemic.
- Deal with the realities of periodic COVID cases or exposures involving themselves, loved ones, and extended school family.
- Technology challenges and hiccups every day!
What a year it has been. So during this Teacher Appreciation Week we want to send some extra recognition and thanks your way.
We’re giving away 3 local food prizes worth $150 each for 3 deserving winners, who will be selected in a random drawing on May 6. Winners will need to live in our delivery area. https://www.seasonalroots.com/delivery-areas
We’ll also be donating to a cause that helps children. Which cause? We’ll let you teachers guide us.
Any teacher is welcome to enter the drawing. When you enter, be sure to nominate your favorite kid-related cause to receive our donation. We’ll pick one and also highlight them all to raise awareness.
Be sure to enter before noon on May 6!
Many, many thanks for all you do!
