It's with Teacher Appreciation Week ( May 3rd- May 7th) just ahead and the end of school in mind that we want to feature a news story shared throughout the Crossroads of Vicker's Elementary School being nominated and awarded as one of 50 stops on the H.E.B's Excellence in Education, Texas Loves Teachers Tour!

It's the 20th anniversary of the Texas Love Teachers event and it kicked off in March, with the plan to tour 50 schools in 50 days throughout Texas giving away $20,000 in cash and prizes to school employees as well as hosting an appreciation event for each school that is visited along the way.

According to the website, which you can read in its entirety here, " In addition to the Texas Loves Teachers Tour, H-E-B Excellence in Education will be giving away $100,000 in cash prizes to educators throughout the state during a Virtual Tribute to Texas Teachers on Saturday, May 8, 2021.

All public school districts, teachers and principals within the state of Texas will be eligible to win along with any early childhood facility. Teachers, principals, districts, and early childhood facilities can enter throughout the duration of the tour.

If you are a teacher, administrator or even part of the Early Childhood centers in Texas, you can register for the chance to win $100,000.00 right here too! The names of the winners will be posted on the website here no later than May 11th.

Crossroads Today reporter, Jennifer Flores offers in her recent article that, "On Friday, April 16, the H-E-B prize bus will pull into the Vickers Elementary School parking lot to hand out goodies to all teachers and staff, as well as a boxed lunch or breakfast goodie from H-E-B. Teachers and staff will also have the opportunity to register to win more than $2000 in H-E-B gift cards, while the bus is onsite.

We are so proud of VISD and the Vickers Elementary School staff and can't wait to see how their party goes during the tour, but we'd love to see them win some easy money too! Be sure to share this if you know a deserving education staff member.

Thank you to all of our Crossroads teachers, administrators and staff for all you do.

Don't forget them on May 3rd through the 7th for Teacher Appreciation Week!
