ESS Substitute Appreciation Week Celebrations

The week of May 6th – 10th marked one of our favorite weeks of the year – National Substitute Teacher Appreciation Week! It was a fun-filled week of exciting giveaways, promotions, and special events as a small token of our appreciation for the incredible work our employees do every day of the year.

Company-Wide Gift Card Raffle

We raffled off two $250 American Express gift cards every day of the week. Each ESS substitute who worked that day received an automatic entry into the random drawing. Winners were announced each afternoon on social media.

Congratulations to the Lucky Winners!

Congratulations to the five lucky winners: Brenton Powell, Diana Milligan, Robert Ryan, Wendy Knapp, and Janice Gilbert!

Wilson County, TN Employee Appreciation Party

The local ESS team in Tennessee hosted an Employee Appreciation Party for the substitutes at the Wilson County School District! In addition to a table full of yummy refreshments, each substitute received a goody bag and a water bottle. Plus, 10 gift cards to local stores and restaurants were raffled off!

Aiken County, SC Mix & Mingle

Substitutes of the Aiken County Public School District took part in a fun mix and mingle event with the local ESS team. Together, they enjoyed delicious refreshments and celebrated another amazing school year!

Subs for Subs in Beaufort, SC

The ESS team in Beaufort distributed coupons to substitutes for a free sub sandwich at Jersey Mike’s Subs. No pun intended!

These are only a handful of the ways ESS celebrated our staff during National Substitute Teacher Appreciation Week. We couldn’t be more grateful for our dedicated employees and the important work they do throughout the school year. With the goal of creating a rewarding employee experience, we look forward to future events and promotions!
