GACC Welcomes New Teachers to Anna ISD

The Greater Anna Chamber of Commerce welcomed new teachers to Anna ISD with two special events thanks to help from our fantastic chamber members. On Monday, August 7th y{our} Anna Chamber delivered 80 New Teacher bags filled with member’s promotional materials including more to the school district. New Teacher bags were stocked with items such as pens, pencils, rulers, cups and coupons. These goody bags were given to all of the new staff to Anna ISD, not just teachers. This is one way we can show how much our community appreciates what the school district does for our students, as well as, promotes our members to potential new customers. We also raffled off door prizes donated by our members Grayson College and Academics Plus, L.C. Thank you to the Anna ISD students who helped create the New Teacher bags: K. Terry, R. Stockton and T. Wilson.

The following day y{our} Anna Chamber hosted a Taste of Anna lunch for the first year teachers and staff. Lunch included food from My Estrella Mexican Cuisine, Lulu’s NZ Bakery, Crow’s, JB’s Legacy, Mama Mia’s and Subway. We had another raffle thanks to our member, WRA Architects. This raffle had a grand prize of a $300 gift card to go towards the teacher’s classroom! Approximately 35 staff partook in the luncheon and they all raved about the special treatment received.

We look forward to welcoming the new teachers each year, especially as the school district grows. Our goal is to help retain these teachers in Anna while showcasing our unique members.
