P.S. I Love You Day is held every second Friday of February. On this day we ask everyone to wear purple to represent standing up against bullying, help end depression, and ultimately prevent suicide. We hope that on this day you walk around your community, school, or work office and see a sea of purple. We hope that you hear nothing but positive messages that make you feel special, loved, and remind you, you truly are never alone.
Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. For these reasons we celebrate you this Teacher's appreciation Week!
