To the Editor:
I would like to publicly thank American Legion Post 36 members for hosting the Appreciation Tea this past Wednesday, recognizing the work that educators do in the schools. The thoughtfulness of the Legion members is appreciated by the teachers at Fairmont Area Schools.
We also appreciate the recognition that Bank Midwest and school board did for the staff, as well as the ad in the paper by the various businesses in our community that recognizes the work we do in the classroom. Your support and help mean a lot to the staff.
Hopefully, you heard some of the public service announcements prepared by our students. The students enjoyed sharing their thoughts about what education means to them. The food shelf boxes at the schools were overflowing with food items for those in need in our community. The boxes will be delivered to the Salvation Army to help make someone's family have a better Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Finally, last week was a good week for our school and community. With the passing of the referendum, the school board was able to reinstate funding for programs and staff. We appreciated the many letters to the editor regarding the programs we have in our schools and the positive impact we have on your children. We are truly blessed to have a supportive community.
