Teachers honored at Unity

Teachers at Unity Elementary School in Luthersville were honored in several ways during Teacher Appreciation Week in May.

The sign in front of the school featured a “We Love Our Teachers” message. Kasey Calhoun, president of the Unity Parent-Teacher Organization, said the PTO sponsored special events throughout the week.

On May 6, a staff appreciation breakfast was held. The menu included “McDonald’s sausage biscuits, Chick-fil-a biscuits, Dunkin Donuts and fruit,” Calhoun said.

May 7 was National Teacher Day. That day the PTO served a spaghetti lunch to the staff.

Allen-Lee United Methodist Church in Lone Oak, which has an ongoing partnership with the school, put together a delectable dessert bar to accent the meal.

On May 8, each teacher received a bag of candy with a poem expressing appreciation. The next day, each teacher received a decorated Mason jar with a flower and a message: “Thanks for helping our children bloom.”

An ice cream sundae bar was held on May 10.
