“Thank a Teacher Day” at Colleyville Middle School
Friday, January 8 will be “Thank a Teacher Day” at Colleyville Middle School, thanks to a proclamation issued by Coleman Elam, a sixth-grader at CMS.
Coleman issued the proclamation after winning the City of Colleyville’s Mayor for a Day contest. The contest, which requires all participants to write an essay, was open to all Colleyville residences in second through seventh-grade. There were 83 essays submitted, with Coleman’s being chosen as the winner.
Coleman acted as mayor on Tuesday, January 5. As mayor, he was able to tour the city department, help operate machinery at a city construction site, ride along with the police, and co-preside a city council meeting with Colleyville Mayor Kelly. It was at the city council meeting where Coleman issued the proclamation for “Thank a Teacher Day”.
The proclamation reads:
City of Colleyville, Texas
Whereas, I, Coleman Elam, submitted the winning essay in the 2015 City of Colleyville "Mayor for a Day" contest; and
THANK A TEACHER DAY
AT COLLEYVILLE MIDDLE SCHOOL
GCISD encourages all students, parents and community member to thank a teacher tomorrow!
