LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Today is ‘Thank a Teacher Day’.

The School District of La Crosse is celebrating teachers.

Tuesday was ‘Thank a Teacher Day’.

Volunteers started off the morning by delivering fresh fruit, donuts and muffins to schools.

At North Woods International School, teachers and staff gathered with members of the La Crosse Community Foundation and Mayor Mitch Reynolds for some in-person recognition.

After nearly a year of virtual learning, teachers say it is nice to be able to celebrate.

“It just feels good to know that people appreciate what we’ve done and what we’re doing for all of our students,” said North Woods International School 2nd grade teacher Becky Misch.
