Province Acknowledges Contributions of Teachers and School Staff

Released on February 13, 2017

Deputy Premier and Minister of Education Don Morgan has proclaimed February 12-18, 2017 as Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week.  This marks the 30th year that Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week has been celebrated in Saskatchewan.

“As influential role models for young learners, teachers and school staff are responsible for more than just success in the classroom,” Morgan said.  “Every day, the dedicated professionals in our province’s schools are responsible for the growth and development of more than 175,000 students.  School staff work diligently to meet the needs of all their students, and we applaud their valuable contributions.”

The Saskatchewan Association of School Community Councils (SASC) promotes the week across the province to draw attention to the important contributions that teachers and school staff make to the education of students.  This year’s theme of Great Teachers/Staff = Engaged Students highlights the relationship between staff and students.

“Motivated students are more excited to learn and participate,” SASC Director Joy Bastness said.  “Great teachers make learning fun and inspire students to reach their full potential.  They influence how students see themselves, how they learn, the success they achieve and the kind of person they will become.  A great teacher or staff member can change a student's life.”

Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week was first introduced in 1988 by The Canadian Home and School Federation, a national organization of parents who volunteer for schools through Parent School Advisory Councils and Home and School Associations.
