The week of May 4-8 has been set aside as National Teacher Appreciation Week. During this week, teachers and staff from Cherokee Elementary school were pampered and treated like royalty by principal Tracy Webb.
During the week, Webb hosted a special breakfast and lunch, provided door prizes and even brought Sonic drinks as a way to show her appreciation to the teachers and to commend them on the job they do on a daily basis. Webb also pampered the teachers with 10 minute mini massages.
Glenda Lane with Lane Therapeutic Massage Clinic performed 52 massages May 7 and 8. Counselor Meg Barnes remarked that Webb had gone above and beyond in treating her staff to these wonderful sessions.
Lane said among the numerous benefits to massage is increased flow of blood and relief of stress and tension.
Webb also gave away two gift certificates for hour long massages to the teachers. Angie Maag and Beverly Gilbreath won the massages.
