Every year, a day in November is designated National Educational Support Personnel Day to recognize and focus attention on the support of educational assistants, substitute teachers, clerical and technical employees, custodians and food service workers. Thanksgiving will be around the corner so start your thanking early and thank your support personnel.
National Education Support Professionals Day was first celebrated in 1987. The National Education Association’s Representative Assembly called for the creation of the day as a way to thank school support staff. These workers assist to your children’s learning by helping create a safe and successful learning environment in schools.
For your support personnel that are constantly present in your school, like custodians and clerical employees, thank them with promotional alarm clocks to remind them that they are special every morning. You could also have all the students sign a piece of paper which ePromos can transfer the signatures onto a soft personalized blanket.
