The 2018 “Thank a Teacher” Campaign

Posted on

Do you know a Virginia public school teacher at Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School who deserves a “thank you” for all they do? Here’s a way to send them one.

Help our PTSA celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7-11, 2018) by sending a thank-you note to an inspiring teacher. We joined the Virginia Lottery’s “Thank a Teacher” campaign and their pledge to thank as many public school teachers in the Commonwealth as possible – and we need your help to do so!

All teachers who receive one of our thank-you notes can enter a drawing for a chance to win one of four prizes, including one of two amazing Virginia vacation packages through a partnership with the Virginia Tourism Corporation, four round-trip train tickets through a partnership with Amtrak and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, or a $500 VISA gift card courtesy of the Virginia Lottery.

You can submit a thank-you note in two ways:
1) Electronically – simply visit to send a digital thank-you note to a deserving teacher via email.
2) Printed Notecard – you can request printed thank-you notes from your local PTA. You also can order them from the Virginia Lottery by emailing (please note that the Virginia Lottery can only fulfill requests for a minimum of 50 printed thank-you notes, and will need at least five business days to fulfill the request).

Thank you for celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week with us and the Virginia Lottery. The Virginia Lottery is game for public education, and we know you are, too!
