Letter: Action louder than words

Dear Editor:

I was very impressed with a recent article in the Courier. For years students, parents and others have verbally “thanked” teachers for all that they do for our kids during Teacher Appreciation Week.

It is really appreciated and thoughtful to do so. However I was even more impressed with the act of appreciation and kindness shown by a group of parents from Rutherfordton Elementary. Cheers to the group that put words into action and washed the cars of the entire faculty!! To those that coordinated the event and to all of those who volunteered their time … very impressive and your children should be proud of you. A+ FOR THE DAY!!!
