Tuesday, August 7 was a  day of appreciation for teachers and staff within the Mansfield School District. The United Methodist Church kicked off the day by serving breakfast and by donating elementary school supplies to teachers. Following that, First Baptist Church in Mansfield hosted a luncheon.

The ladies of the church prepared and served approximately 120 teachers and staff. The meal consisted of chicken poppyseed casserole, corn, salad, bread, and peach cobbler.

Pastor of the church, Phillip Slaughter, gave an inspirational speech on teacher appreciation. Adding that, he “hopes that our church can be a resource and support for them. Our church very much desires to be a light in our community and to serve the ones who pour so much into our children.”
