Substitute Employee Appreciation Day Today
Today, March 14, is “Substitute Appreciation Day,” which spotlights the contributions made by substitute personnel throughout the St. Tammany Parish Public School System.
Schools will be holding a variety of activities to thank their substitute employees for their efforts toward maintaining continuity of instruction and a safe, positive environment in the School System.
The School Board proclaimed March 14 as “Substitute Appreciation Day” last week when it passed a resolution following a presentation by Mrs. Dorable Dangerfield, Supervisor of Human Resources. She told the Board how schools are planning special activities in observance of the day. In the resolution offered by Board Member Mary K. Bellisario, it noted that the substitute program is comprised of professionals dedicated to the education, well-being and safety of all students. They include teachers and paraprofessionals to custodians, clerical workers, lunchroom technicians, cafeteria monitors, bus operators, and bus aides.
“Substitutes play an important role in our schools, providing classroom instruction, school and office support, and help with transportation, all of which is vital when classroom teachers and support personnel are away from school sites,” the resolution stated.
Each school has also been asked to submit a nominee for “Substitute of the Year” to recognize outstanding substitutes for their service and positive impact on our schools.
