Teacher Appreciation Event Letter
Bob Hawkinson recently received a personal letter from the Superintendent of Schools for his recent donation to all the staff members of Matteson Elementary School District 159 for Teacher Appreciation week.
Barbara Suggs Mason writes:
Dear Mr. Hawkinson,
On behalf of the Board of Education, administration and the entire school staff of Elementary School District 159, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude for your recent contributions to our staff. Please know that each individual staff member of the district received your offering of the oil change and the donation of the Panera gift card as well as communication from my office explaining the reason for the gift.
The response received by my office from the various staff members has been overwhelming as they rarely receive this type of generosity from as outside vendor or community member. The work in our schools often goes unnoticed and is, at times even taken for granted. For an individual such as you, and your company, to share your convictions and thanks to those who work with families and children of our communities has a profound and lasting impact on those who have received it.
We, as a school district, are fortunate to have the quality relationships with businesses such as yours who embrace the value of education and the work that talks place in our schools.
I look forward to developing this relationship in the future in an attempt to improve outcomes for the children we serve in the communities we serve.
Again, thank you for your thoughtfulness and keeping Elementary School District 159 in mind.
Barbara Suggs Mason
Superintendent of Schools
