Our District Teacher of the Year A.J. Spiridigliozzi got quite a surprise in his 6th period class last week!
The folks from Coca-Cola Consolidated and Kroger came and presented "Mr. S" with a $1,000 gift card!
Coca-Cola Consolidated and Kroger have teamed up to honor Teachers of the Year in 7 school districts in Central Arkansas as part of their "Big Hearts, mini cans" program.
"Teachers invest in our community each day through their work," says Devin Dunnaway, Director of Retail Sales for Coca-Cola Consolidated, "Our Big Hearts, Mini Cans Program gives us the opportunity to invest back in them. We like to say that our cans might be mini, but our appreciation for our local educators is enormous."
Besides this fun surprise to Mr. S, the teachers of the year from our other 15 schools will also receive $500 to "refresh" their classrooms at an upcoming "Stars in Education" event.
The event will take place at the Clinton Presidential Center on November 10th and will celebrate 150 deserving local educators.
Guests will enjoy live music, a catered dinner, and a ceremony honoring teachers' work to support families throughout Central Arkansas.
THANK YOU to these generous community partners for investing in our teachers!
