May is Teacher Appreciation Month

Each month, we recognize a stellar group of Oscar J. Pope Elementary stakeholders.  For the month of May, we show our appreciation and gratitude to our terrific teachers.  Each day, the terrific teachers of Oscar J. Pope Elementary School provide high quality instruction to our students.  Our teachers work with parents and other community stakeholders to build involvement in our school through parent involvement nights, before and after school tutoring, and weekend events such as the Spring Fling and Yard Sale.  Our teachers invest their personal time to continue professional training to enhance their instruction.  We appreciate our terrific teachers at Oscar J.
