Celebrating American Education Week
American Education Week is celebrated the week before Thanksgiving since 1921. This week exists to celebrate the potential of all American student, recognize, and give thanks to the teachers and professionals working within the educational system as well as honoring the parents, grandparents and guardians to support and encourage students each and everyday.
Work is continuously being done to improve the educational system and ensure that learning is lifelong and not just restricted to the classroom.  I take this wonderful opportunity to celebrate and honor every individual within Elkin City Schools who is making a difference and to ensure that every child receives a quality education. 
It is our chance to celebrate your accomplishments yet no achievement or accolade can be experienced without the whole school community.  This week we honor the team of people within our school.
Elkin City Schools takes pride in believing all children can learn and recognizes their strengths and individuality. Celebrated the week before Thanksgiving American Education Week gives us the opportunity to practice gratitude. Being grateful helps us appreciate the little things in life we tend to take for granted.
This week’s WIFM “Spotlight on Elkin City Schools" is recorded by Dr. Cynthia Altemueller, Chief Academic Officer of Elkin City Schools and is sponsored by State Farm Insurance and your local State Farm Agent, Mr. Steve Owings.
