Teacher Appreciation Day: What Is It and How Can You Show Your Appreciation? 05/09/2024

Teacher Appreciation Week is almost over but the celebration of educators isn't! 🥳

BASIS Charter School teachers play an essential role in shaping the futures of our students. In addition to teaching crucial skills like literacy and math, they teach our students how to think critically, how to collaborate with others, and how to overcome obstacles.

Celebrate your favorite BASIS teachers by writing a thoughtful letter, giving a handmade gift, donating school supplies, volunteering, or giving a gift to the Annual Teachers Fund. 100% of funds donated to the Annual Teacher Fund go towards performance-based compensation for our teachers.

At BASIS DC, we are focused on fostering a positive school culture and community! One way we accomplish this is by sorting students into four Houses.

These Houses play a crucial role in creating a welcoming environment for all students. By interacting with our Houses, students are able to forge friendships across grade levels and learn from their peers. Thanks to our House system, students have plenty of opportunities to socialize, participate in friendly competition, build leadership skills, and celebrate their accomplishments.

Check out our newest blog to learn more about BASIS Houses and how they foster community.

We want you to watch the total solar eclipse this afternoon but we don't want it to be the last thing you see! 🌒 👀 Here are three helpful tips for stellar solar eclipse viewing.

💻Tip 1: Stream the Eclipse. Only 32 million people located along the total eclipse path between Texas and Main have the best opportunity to view this celestial spectacle. Don’t miss a moment of the total eclipse by streaming NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration's live Facebook event on April 8th.

https://go.nasa.gov/3TK1XS6

😎Tip 2: Protect Your Eyes. View the partial or total eclipse through eclipse glasses during the eclipse phases.

☀️Tip 3: Wear SPF. Depending on your local weather forecast, the sun will be bright during eclipse viewing. Remember to wear sunscreen, a hat, and protective clothing to prevent sunburns.
