2024-2025 School Appreciation Days

  • Throughout the year, there are key days, weeks, and months dedicated to generating awareness and recognizing school staff. The Public Information Office (Communications) created the calendar of school appreciation days as a helpful tool for educators as you plan throughout the year. You can determine if and how you will celebrate these days.

    If you know of a day, week, or month that is related to public education or our school district, and it is not listed below, please email the information to info@christina.k12.de.us. We're excited about being more intentional in our efforts to highlight the amazing people and programs in Christina School District!
