A Tribute to Teachers
“Teachers teach because they care. Teaching young people is what they do best. It requires long hours, patience and care.” — Horace Mann —
A Tribute to Teachers is an annual initiative of the Davenport Schools Foundation to give alumni, families and friends the opportunity to honor that special educator (past or present) of the Davenport Community Schools. A tribute can be made to honor any teacher, principal, coach – any educator who made a difference in their lives!
With this tax-deductible gift to the Davenport Schools Foundation (suggested minimum of $25 per tribute), donors will be directly helping students in the district. They will also be letting those teachers and administrators know exactly what they have meant to the donor.
For each tribute received, the Foundation will present the honoree with a special bookmark and a letter of appreciation with a copy of the note enclosed. The tributes will be distributed during Teacher Appreciation Week (held each year in May). Original notes will be compiled and kept in the Davenport School Museum for posterity.
