National Teacher Appreciation Week


May 8 - May 12 | Say thank you to CRS staff!

We have lots of surprises planned to help show our CRS staff how much we appreciate them, but we need your help to make the week a success!


During the week, we'll be treating all staff members to a catered lunch, a dessert bar, and other assorted treats. If you would like to support these efforts, you can donate through our website below!

Other Ways to Share Appreciation

FCPS Cares Program

You can fill out an online comment submission through the FCPS Cares Program. It takes less than a minute!

Appreciation Letter

Submit a thank you letter for a teacher's employee file (this REALLY helps them and is greatly appreciated). Send the letter to the CRS Front Office, attention: Staff Appreciation. Sample form available in Word or PDF (viewable with Adobe Reader or Foxit). 

Thank A Teacher

The CRS PTA is excited to participate in the VA Lottery Thank A Teacher Program again this year. We encourage students, parents, and the general public to send thank-you notes to Virginia's deserving public school teachers during National Teacher Appreciation Week. These notes express your gratitude for all that teachers do and provide them a chance to win some fantastic prizes! In addition, you may submit a digital card online that will be sent to the designated teacher. Official Rules.


Thank you for helping us to recognize our outstanding teachers and staff!
