Expect More Arizona — Teacher and Graduate Celebrations 2020. See more state education news here

But we are confident of the following:

Arizona’s teachers – from preschool through college – are amazing. In every corner of our state, educators continue to give their all to support student success.
Arizona’s spring 2020 graduates worked really hard to reach this milestone, whether they have completed high school, a PhD or anything in between.
Teacher appreciation activities and graduation ceremonies won’t look the same this year, but that doesn’t mean the celebration can’t be bigger than ever!
Participate in Statewide Days of Celebration!

While schools, colleges, individuals and families will undoubtedly find innovative ways to celebrate, we think it’s important to show educators and graduates that all of Arizona recognizes their efforts and accomplishments.

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 – Arizona Teacher Appreciation Day (#AZTeachersRock)

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 – Arizona Graduate Recognition Day (#AZClassof2020)
