De Young Properties Celebrates American Education Week!

This week is American Education Week and De Young Properties is thrilled to partake in the amazing opportunity to celebrate education and honor all of the individuals who are making a difference in ensuring that every child receives a quality education.

Distressed that 25 percent of the country’s World War I draftees were illiterate and 9 percent were physically unfit, representatives of the National Education Association and the American Legion met in 1919 to seek ways to generate public support for education. Following this meeting, in 1921, the NEA Representative Assembly in Des Moines, Iowa, called for designation of one week each year to spotlight education. In its resolution, the NEA called for: “An educational week … observed in all communities annually for the purpose of informing the public of the accomplishments and needs of the public schools and to secure the cooperation and support of the public in meeting those needs.” American Education Week is always celebrated the week prior to the week of Thanksgiving.

This year, American Education Week is celebrated from November 12th to November 16th. You can join in the celebration of public education and honor educators across the nation with a different theme each day of the week! This year’s theme will be reflected in the following special observances each day of the week:

  • Monday, November 12, 2018: Kickoff Day
  • Tuesday, November 13, 2018: Parents Day
  • Wednesday, November 14, 2018: Education Support Professionals Day
  • Thursday, November 15, 2018: Educator for a Day
  • Friday, November 16, 2018: Substitute Educators Day

De Young Properties sees exemplary educational professionals as heroes in our community and would like to take this special opportunity to highlight and show appreciation for educators in the Central Valley! In the spirit of celebrating education, De Young would like to offer $1,500 in personal selections in our exclusive Design Studio to education professionals through our Heroes Program!
