You are cordially invited to join the San Diego Unified School District in celebrating our extraordinary teachers at the Day of the Teacher celebration Tuesday, May 7, at 4 p.m. at the School of Creative and Performing Arts.

Coinciding with National Teacher Appreciation Day, the district’s Day of the Teacher celebration is held as a special off-site Board of Education meeting, allowing honorees, guests, board members and the district leadership team to celebrate and socialize in a casual setting.

All site teacher of the year honorees, Teacher of the Year candidates and district Teacher of the Year winners and runners-up will be recognized, along with San Diego Education Fund Scholarship recipients.

This festive celebration recognizes the outstanding work of our teachers, and features entertainment from our San Diego Unified student musicians, and food prepared and served by students enrolled in our CCTE Culinary Arts programs.

New to this year’s celebration is a “Wellness Hour” during the pre-ceremony reception that will focus on our commitment to teacher appreciation year-round through the various wellness initiatives offered to all employees district wide. Interactive wellness booths will offer teachers healthy living perks and prizes all aimed at showing our gratitude, and nurturing their health.

Please join us for this very special event.
