Launching Success Learning Store will honor local teachers during its sixth annual Teacher Appreciation Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 19.
The Bellingham store, which sells educational materials for teachers, home-schooled children and parents, is located at 133 Prince Ave.
The first 75 people to arrive will receive bags full of various gifts from the store and from other suppliers.
There will be three grand prize drawings for a set of six classroom chairs, a Park Tower garage for creative children’s play and a chart stand with a whiteboard.
Door prizes will be given away every 15 minutes throughout the celebration. Refreshments will be provided by Costco and Starbucks of Lynden.
Lisa Chovil’s Mary Kay Cosmetics team will also provide free products and games.
The event honors all who teach, including home-schooling parents as well as classroom teachers.
“We see every day how committed our teachers are to educating our children, and we want to let them know how much we appreciate all their hard work,” Dan Sanford, co-owner of Launching Success, said in a May 9 press release.
