We know how important our teachers are to our kids.  These are the people that are shaping their minds, encouraging them and pushing them to be the best.   Our teachers deserve all the recognition we can give them.

They have worked hard this year and the Amarillo Zoo wants to recognize that hard work.    That's why they are dedicating this Saturday to teachers.

WHAT: Teacher Appreciation Day

WHEN: Saturday, May 12th, 9:30a-5pm

WHERE: Amarillo Zoo - Thompson Park, NE 24th and the Dumas Highway

All teachers can get free admission to the Amarillo Zoo with their school ID.

Plus it will give teachers a chance to learn new things that they could possibly add to their curriculum next year.  Plus a chance to learn about new zoo programs that you can implement in the classroom.

The school year is almost over and our teachers have been amazing and that's why the Amarillo Zoo wants to celebrate our teachers with a free day to enjoy all the Amarillo Zoo Has to offer.
