Teacher Appreciation Week 2011

    "There is an old saying that the course of civilization is a race between catastrophe and education. In a democracy such as ours, we must make sure that education wins the race."
--John F. Kennedy

Great Teachers Make Great Public Schools
WHEREAS, teachers make public schools great; and
WHEREAS, teachers work to open students' minds to ideas, knowledge and dreams; and
WHEREAS, teachers keep American democracy alive by laying the foundation for good citizenship; and
WHEREAS, teachers fill many roles, as listeners, explorers, role models, motivators and mentors; and
WHEREAS, teachers continue to influence us long after our school days are only memories;
Now, therefore, I, Calabasas High School Principal
Do hereby proclaim Tuesday, May 3, 2011, as
National Teacher Day
I urge that we observe this day by taking time to recognize and acknowledge the impact of teachers on our lives.

Please reach out a thank a teacher that has influenced you or one of your children.

Thank you to all the teachers.

Administrators and Culinary Arts students serve the teachers homemade breakfast.

Teachers enjoy their time together, talking and celebrating the joys and challenges of our profession.

 Creative table setting with gifts for our team.
     "The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth."--Dan Rather
