SPENCER, MA - February 27th, 2023 - Each year, district leaders, specialists, teacher educators, parents and school board members come together with the Learning First Alliance (LFA) to celebrate Public Schools Week, a time to show the strength—and potential—of our nation’s public schools and our students’ futures. This year, Public Schools Week will be held Feb. 27-March 3.

In 2023, Public Schools Week is part of a larger campaign—#HerefortheKids. The #HerefortheKids campaign brings together families, educators and community members to shine a light on local public schools and tell the stories of the amazingly positive things happening in classrooms and school buildings nationwide.

Please join us in celebrating public schools and the dedicated educators and professionals who support students in so many ways.

There are so many ways you can make an impact:

  • Share your school success story on social media
  • Thank your child’s teacher or principal
  • Serve on a school or district committee
  • Volunteer to tutor
  • Volunteer at your local library
  • Encourage local businesses to develop internship & apprenticeship programs for students
