In November 2011, Mission Fed joined efforts with Junior Achievement and Cox to host our 3rd Annual "I'm Thankful for My Teacher Because..." . Thousands of notes poured in to say thank you to teachers throughout San Diego County. Teachers do so many special things in their “mission to educate” for our local students and future generations. Kids and parents sent in notes from all around San Diego to salute teachers for their hard work, dedication, enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile for our students and their families.
Winning teachers and students received the following fantastic prizes, compliments of Mission Fed:
- Winning teachers who received the most thank you notes received $150 Visa Gift Cards.
- Students of the winning teachers won a classroom party or field trip of their choice.
- Schools with the most thank you notes and compelling notes won a $200 School Spirit Award.
- Students of the winning teachers also received free Junior Achievement financial education classes in their classroom for the school year.
