On January 24, 2018, we celebrated the third I Love Public Schools Day, a day dedicated to supporting our students, teachers and public school communities. By 8:30 a.m., the home-grown holiday trended in Nebraska and reached national attention throughout the day.
With thousands of messages, photos, and stories submitted, we wanted to shine a spotlight on a few of our “Best Of” I Love Public Schools Day posts. We are proud of the participation and support that poured in online throughout the big day.
Thank you to everyone who shared stories and photos with us.
Mark your calendars for I Love Public Schools Day 2019: Wednesday, January 23, 2019
