Area teachers go extra mile

So much thanks and appreciation go out to the teachers, staff, volunteers and administration of Paul Banks Elementary (PBE). My family and I attended our first Bingo for Books event recently and we left with huge smiles on our  faces. I was surprised at the number of quality books that were given to each student, entertained by the kids’ Bingo enthusiasm and participation, and most of all, impressed with the dedication of the teachers and staff at PBE.   

These teachers consistently provide nurturing and inspiring lessons throughout their work day. But they also sacrifice their own personal time away from their families, after school and into the evenings, to create and foster fun, educational and entertaining events for their students. Your efforts do not go unnoticed and the relationships you build with your students and community are priceless. Thank you — and all area teachers — for all you do.
