Teacher Appreciation Week is one of the most exciting and special weeks of the year.  This week is set aside annually to honor the amazing teachers and staff of McGinnis Woods, who give of themselves to inspire and encourage our students each and every day of the year.

Each Teacher Appreciation Week is centered around a theme that let's our teachers and staff know just how special they truly are!  Some of our favorite themes have been:  Learning in Paradise, McGinnis Woods Dream Team and Our Teachers are Out of This World!  During the week teachers and staff are treated to a special lunch, a dessert day, a class gift and the change to win a raffle for an overnight trip and other prizes.  All raffle tickets are purchased by students in honor of their favorite teachers so the prizes become all the more special!


  • Every teacher and staff member has had at least one ticket bought in their honor each year since the inception of the teacher raffle!
  • Teachers and staff love the special dessert cart that makes its way through the halls filled with delectable treats!
  • Teacher Appreciation Week raffle winners have been sent on overnight packages including destinations such as: the Fox Theater, Chateau Elan and Stone Mountain.
  • Teachers and staff most enjoy the special notes and pictures that their students make them expressing appreciation.
  • McGinnis Woods Teachers and Staff are like members of the family.
