May is Teacher Appreciation Month and your FKPC Mission Ministry tries to make sure that our teachers feel appreciated.
Fort King has been a school partner for Ward-Highlands Elementary School for many years. We have always done mission activities for both the teachers and staff and for the needy students. Until two years ago we did an angel tree at Christmas that allowed our members to help about 25 needy children have a happier holiday. However, with the onset of Covid, we have switched to the Book Drive to benefit all the children in the school. We have also supported the backpacks for kids' program that sends home a backpack on the weekend filled with food and snacks for the children and families.
Recently, we have also partnered with Wyomina Park Elementary because our own Lorraine Fuller teaches there, and she helps us to see the needs at that much lower socio-economic school. We have had clothes drives to provide shorts and pants needed during accidents at school and have included their entire student population in our Book Drive.
However, this month is Teacher Appreciation, and we provide breakfast for both schools’ teachers and staffs during the week of May 4th. Sometimes we provide lunch for them, but this year we are delivering 12 dozen donuts to each school for the teachers and staff to enjoy. There will be a sign in the Narthex for you to write a short thank-you to the teachers.
Please remember to thank any teachers you know this month for their hard work and dedication to our students.
