PHOENIX – As schools across Arizona and the country closed down because of coronavirus, educators thought of their students.

Arizona teachers’ school year officially came to an end in late March, when Gov. Doug Ducey and Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman announced campuses were shutting down.

But teachers efforts are still being recognized despite social distancing during Teacher Appreciation Week, which runs through Friday.

Expect More Arizona, a nonpartisan advocacy group, offered several suggestions how parents, students and supporters can show their gratitude, among them:

  • Orchestrate a neighborhood parade of cars or decorate your car with balloons and messages of support, then drive around.
  • Write a message in chalk on the sidewalk outside your home.
  • Share messages with appropriate hashtags on social media.

Stores are offering discounts include:

  • Bashas’ supermarkets will give all teachers a 10% discount
    Tuesday. That includes administrators and school workers are included. Shoppers must show a valid school ID for the discount.
  • Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is offering teachers a 15% discount off for takeout orders.

We want to hear from you.
