WCE’s Department of EEMLS Holds Student Appreciation Day Events

Friday, April 01, 2016

Each month, faculty in WCE’s Department of Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle Grades, Literacy and Special Education (EEMLS) host an event to show appreciation for students. On Student Appreciation Days, literature related to a theme is displayed on the second floor of the Education Building and the department offers complimentary refreshments.

In February, the department celebrated Valentine’s Day with coffee, donuts and books about love and friendship. On St. Patrick’s Day in March, students were invited to peruse non-fiction books about sports while enjoying complimentary pizza.

Laurie Howell, administrative associate in the EEMLS department coordinates the Student Appreciation Day events.

“The events are a way for us to thank students for choosing UNCW and choosing to be a teacher,” Howell said. “It’s a message that we don’t deliver often enough.”
