On June 1, seven Arcadia-area teachers and one local principal gathered at Postino winecafe for the third annual Arcadia News Teachers We Love luncheon.

Throughout the 2015-2016 school year, nine teachers were surprised in their classroom with a presentation by the Arcadia News staff as well as their nominating family. Each teacher was awarded dinner for two at Postino, a day of pampering at Salon Sandoval, an Arcadia News backpack filled with swag and an invitation to the annual June luncheon.

The luncheon, a favorite day for our staff, is sponsored by Postino. The two-hour festivity is an opportunity for educators from schools throughout our area to compare, discuss and learn from each other as well as laugh about entertaining and unimaginable moments in the classroom.

Seeing the joy and appreciation the teachers have for the kind words each student shares in their nomination is truly an honor to the Arcadia News staff.
