Store representatives from Marana-based Wal-Mart surprised Thornydale Elementary staff on Friday, Sept. 28 during the school's Friday assembly.
Teachers were surprised and appreciative when representatives randomly selected 21 teacher names to receive the Walmart "Teacher Appreciation Award."
Each teacher received a $50 gift card to Walmart. In addition to the gift cards, Walmart donated ten boxes of school supplies; i.e: paper, pencils, notepads, backpacks, and much more. They also brought cake for all our staff to enjoy.
