Thank you to our Community Supporters for a great, Virtual, Teacher Appreciation Week!
Dear Community Partner:
The Arlington Council of PTAs is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to supporting our Arlington ISD students, teachers, staff, and families. In recognition of the important work teachers and staff do on a daily basis across our district, we are proud to sponsor a Virtual Teacher Appreciation token of gratitude for National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4-8, 2020).
The Coronavirus Pandemic has changed the way we all function in life, especially students and schools. With the closing of the physical school buildings and the switch to online learning, we have created a way to virtually show our appreciation to the 8,200 Arlington ISD employees. Our idea for the virtual gift is to create a digital coupon book. The coupon book will be used for AISD employees to enjoy either freebies or discounts at local businesses.
We need YOUR help to make this possible. Please consider creating a coupon to add to our book. To participate, design a coupon on your computer and save it as a pdf file. Once your coupon file has been created, email it to Valorie Kruger at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, April 30, 2020.
Thank you for your support of AISD’s Teachers and Staff!

Council is trying to set a better example for our local units and part of that is doing a better job following our bylaws and standing rules.
