9. Thank a teacher
We celebrate National Teacher's Day on Tuesday, May 3rd; it is also the Birthday month for Head Start! Teachers are our organization's heart and soul, and we wouldn't be community action without them!
Please take a moment to #ThankATeacher and let them know how much you appreciate them.
10. Never stop celebrating
While May is a celebration of Community Action, we encourage you to celebrate with us 365 days of the year by staying connected and up-to-date to learn more about ways you can support your community.
