    It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! Students, parents, administrators and our community have been celebrating our teachers all week. I am grateful to 2,000+ teachers who are making a difference in the lives of our students every day here in Cabarrus County Schools. Know that you are appreciated. We salute you and thank you for choosing an incredibly difficult job.
     
    We also celebrated National School Nurse Day earlier this week. Now, more than ever, school nurses contribute to student health and learning every day. We are grateful for our long-standing partnership with Cabarrus Health Alliance, which provides our school nurses.
