Teacher Appreciation Fair

The Teacher Appreciation Fair exists to celebrate and recognize teachers for their hard work. The Fair is an effort to connect businesses, community organizations, and educators in one place while providing a fun and exciting atmosphere. Throughout the year, Granite Education Foundation collects donations from the community and businesses to support their overall mission, but any donations over program needs are then used in the annual Teacher Sweep. A Black Friday style event where Granite educators get items for their classrooms, schools, and homes. The event includes teacher giveaways, food trucks, Teacher Sweep, vendors with teacher discounts, GEF donors, and just any other way to show educators how much we appreciate their service.
