Teacher appreciation

Teachers at Prince Edward County Public Schools were pleasantly surprised by a room service cart at their classroom doors, brought by Superintendent Dr. Barbara Johnson. The school division’s teachers work tirelessly to ensure students’ success, and recognition of these efforts is well-deserved. The cart offered treats like fruits, beverages, candy, and potato chips as well as school supply items. United Way of Prince Edward County supplied funding for this project. United Way is a nonprofit that strives to empower communities and advance the common good. Through its partnership with Prince Edward County Public Schools, United Way donates grants for teacher incentive projects and food for family events. The group’s donation for the room service cart is just one example of its unwavering dedication to Prince Edward County. Pictured are, from left, Denise Lucas, Mark Gubash, Dr. Barbara A. Johnson and Keith Claassen. We commend the United Way of Prince Edward County for its support of area schools. (Send “Way to Go!” photos with a description and names to WayToGo@FarmvilleHerald.com.)
