  • National Family Week - Day 6:

    [fed-ob][pro] National Family Week in the United States takes place the week of American Thanksgiving. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
    Across the range of diverse experiences and traditions that have been written into our Nation's story, family has remained a steadfast and common foundation. Every day, families offer comfort and support to one another with enduring and unconditional love and they contribute to their communities and our country. During National Family Week, we uplift and honor the families that give so much to forge a brighter future for themselves and for America. [...] This week, let us reflect on and applaud the hard work, resilience, and dedication of our families.
  • American Education Week - Day 6:

    [pro] This week is meant to honor the teachers, mentors, and professionals who guide young people as they explore the world. According the Presidential Proclamation,
    In the United States, every young person deserves access to a world-class education. In classrooms, lecture halls, and laboratories across America, high-quality education helps unlock the limitless potential of our Nation's students and creates pathways for their success. It prepares them for the jobs of tomorrow and the responsibilities of citizenship. A strong school system bolsters our economy and strengthens our democracy, and it is at the core of the American belief that with hard work, anyone can get ahead. During American Education Week, we celebrate the devoted educators who instruct and inspire students of all ages, and we continue our work to provide every person with the best education possible.
  • The Day After Thanksgiving:
