Last week, Knights of Excellence put on a full week of events for educators at FHN to participate in to celebrate their work. This week is an addition to the National American Education Week normally held in November.

“It was a nice little break from the normal routine for teachers,” French teacher Dave Fritz said. “It gave everyone an idea of how hard educators work, how much time and commitment we put into making the learning process successful and fun. And it was just a way to honor educators for all we do.”

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings there was a fashion show in the Learning Commons to showcase the teachers that dressed up to the theme of the day. Members of KOE then voted for the teacher that had the best-executed outfit for that day. Teachers received raffle tickets each day they participated. On Tuesday, the student members of KOE handed out raffle tickets as well to teachers that told them why they loved FHN and teaching. On Wednesday afternoon, the teachers were passed out desserts. On Thursday, KOE provided the teachers with lunch. On Friday, the tickets received by the teachers are put in a raffle and are drawn for the chance to receive gift cards provided by KOE members.

“It’s fun to dress up and be recognized by the students for my silliness,” math teacher Patty Bartell said.

Each year, KOE dedicates this week, to highlight the works of the educators in the building and show the appreciation of the students as well. KOE decided to celebrate in March instead of November because of the busy schedule it has first semester and in hopes that it serves as a little pick-me-up right before Spring break.

“We hope people enjoyed the week,” KOE sponsor Kristen Johnson said. “We had a lot of teachers participate and we appreciate that they’re always good sports about the stuff we have going on.”
