Teachers appreciated support

Dear Editor:

On behalf of those teachers picketing in front of Giant’s Head School, I would like to thank all of you who supported us.

From daily honks, waves and words of encouragement to those who provided baking, treats, advice, eggs, salmon, coffee, tea, harvest fruits and vegetables and financial assistance..we express our sincere gratitude.

In particular, we would like to thank our secret “strike fairy.” Last week, someone left a mason jar at our line every morning.

Monday it said, “Teachers Rock” and it was filled with candy rockets. Tuesday’s jar was filled with inspirational quotes that we read throughout our shifts. Wednesday’s jar was filled with a bouquet of origami flowers and kind words.  Thursday morning we were greeted with a note that read, “I hope you enjoyed the quotes and the flowers, but I know lifesavers, sometimes just need chocolate. Thank you.” Friday we were left bath salts and a heartfelt poem that reminded us the importance of what we were standing for.

In the midst of a difficult time, we were boosted by these incredible random acts of kindness, reminding us again of the wonderful community we live in.
