Celebrating Public Schools Week

Public schools week

Public Schools Week is an annual celebration aimed at recognizing the invaluable contributions made by all employees within our public school system and the communities they serve. It serves as an occasion to host various events and to engage with policymakers, businesses, and other community stakeholders to advocate for the significance of public education. This year, it spans from February 26 to March 1. Public Schools Week highlights the importance of our nation’s public schools and the dedicated individuals driving them forward and aligns with the #HerefortheKids initiative. HerefortheKids aims to unite families, educators, and community members in spotlighting local public schools and sharing the positive stories emerging from classrooms and school campuses nationwide. To delve deeper into the mission behind Public Schools Week, you can visit the LFA’s website.

A wonderful way to participate is by expressing your appreciation for anyone in the Ankeny Community School District on our website’s thank you page or social media, accompanied by the hashtag #acsdPSW24.

We invite you to join us in celebrating Ankeny Schoolsand the tireless efforts of educators and school professionals dedicated to nurturing the growth and development of our children!
