Education Foundation of Lake County holds special Teacher Appreciation Month fundraiser

Lake County Schools teachers have navigated an incredibly challenging school year. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have had to keep students engaged online and in person, social distance with students and peers and quarantine and limit activities – all while wearing a mask.

Those wishing to show their gratitude to Lake County teachers for the job they’ve done during the COVID-19 pandemic can do so by making a $10 donation during the Teacher Appreciation Month fundraiser.

The Education Foundation of Lake County invites the community to express gratitude to teachers while participating in a “Teachers Rock” fundraiser throughout May, which is Teacher Appreciation Month.

For every $10 donation made on behalf of a favorite teacher or teachers, the Education Foundation will send a postcard that says, “You Rock!” to the recipients. The postcards can be ordered online at EdFoundationLake.com/product/teachers-rock.

“This is a small but easy gesture to let our amazing educators know how much they are appreciated,” said Diane Kornegay, Lake County Schools superintendent. “Plus, the campaign will help fund innovative programs, most often sparked by our teachers, that help students succeed in and outside the classroom.”
