FAIRFIELD --- The Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the inaugural Teacher Appreciation event on Wednesday, September 25th from 4:30-7:30pm at the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center and included teachers from Fairfield Community School District, Maharishi School, Pekin Community School District and Cardinal Community School District.
This event was aimed at helping all Pre-K through 12th Grade teachers stock their classrooms with the supplies that they need for the year ahead. Most, if not all of these teachers spend their own money on classroom supplies throughout the year. Madonna Smithburg, Service Center Supervisor, represented Indian Hills and distributed backpacks, notepads, pens, pencils and highlighters. Over 125 local educators attended and enjoyed the evening.
