Teachers Recognized by Wal-Mart
Southland Elementary was recognized by 4 Associates from Wal-Mart for Walmart’s teacher appreciation week. It is an annual event they do for schools in the communities they serve. They gave $1000 teacher reward gift cards to 20 teachers for supplies/snacks/classroom use as teachers usually spend their own money to help educate students. The associates gave us an overview of how they support communities by giving back, everyone did the Wal-Mart cheer and each teacher was recognized by the student body and staff as they received their gift card. Wal-Mart also provided the entire staff with a Rebel cake and punch. Thank you Wal-Mart. - Photo courtesy of Jill Felten
