Wauwatosa families rally outside library for teacher appreciation
WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It is not unusual to hold teacher appreciation days or weeks. But in Wauwatosa, they took their appreciation to the street today, on June 9.
Parents and kids stood and cheered outside the Wauwatosa library at 76th and North, rallying in support of the system's teachers at the end of what has been a challenging year.
"Between the pandemic and now heightened concerns around school safety, we thought it was important to tell our local teachers how much we love and support them. and we care so much, we're willing to shout it from the street corner," said Nikki Etter, Wauwatosa parent and wife of teacher at Wauwatosa.
This public display was organized by "SOS" or "Support Our Schools" described as a non-partisan group of moms, dads and others in the community who advocate for public schools in Wauwatosa.
