Bella Moore, 8, goes over school supplies with her new third-grade teacher Mandy Koch at the RM Moore open house on Friday afternoon.

Cherokee County School District is inviting students to show thanks to teachers and other school staff members that are making a difference.

“We know our School District is a family of caring teachers, counselors, bus drivers, cafeteria staff and many more, all focused on doing their best to serve our students … and a new districtwide initiative will now give students the opportunity to thank them!” Superintendent Brian Hightower said in a statement. “We’re excited to begin #thanksCCSD and honor those among us who go above and beyond.”

Through #thanksCCSD, students can thank a CCSD staff member by filling out a notecard and placing it in a special box (lettered by Woodstock High School Teacher of the Year Isobel Mason and her students) at their school. While students have the opportunity to fill out a card at school, they also can complete an online form at any time using the #thanksCCSD button on the homepage of the CCSD website and on every school’s homepage.

Schools will use these thank-you notes for recognition at the school level and will share some with CCSD’s Office of Communications for posting on CCSD social media. Once a month, one honored staff member will be recognized by Superintendent Hightower with a visit to their school and a $25 Visa gift card donated by Credit Union of Georgia.
