RSG! Celebrates Teacher Appreciation Day

May 5 is National Teacher Appreciation Day and we are excited to send a huge THANK YOU to all the the teachers we work with and our Olympians and Paralympians, who help teach students as part of the Ready, Set, Gold! program!

Teachers provide so much to their students and we know that many have gone above and beyond, especially these past two months, to help students while schools are closed.


  1. Post about a teacher on your social media with a photo, story, video or quote that shows why you appreciate all that they do. Make sure to tag @readysetgoldsocal and so we can share too!

  2. E-mail a thank you picture or card to your teacher! We know that teachers love to hear from their students and an unexpected thank you goes a long way.

  3. Pay it forward. Sign up to volunteer in your community, participate or run a community service project to honor the teacher that means so much to you!
