#ADayInSchool -- Again!

We're promoting a social media campaign during the 2019 New Mexico Legislature to remind lawmakers, and the constituents they serve, of the important work we do on a daily basis.

During the 2019 New Mexico Legislature, we're launching the second #ADayInSchool social media campaign. The timing is deliberate. As lawmakers consider legislation and funding that impacts public education, we want to remind them – and the constituents they serve – of the important work we do on a daily basis.

We are encouraging all of our schools to tweet at least one positive image and/or message each school day during the session (Tuesday, Jan. 15-Saturday, March 16) using the hashtag #ADayInSchool.

The tweets should include messages and/or images that represent teaching and learning. Show student work, students learning, teachers teaching. If students are permissioned, you can show their faces (though we recommend you don’t share their names.) If students aren’t permissioned, make sure they are not identifiable in the tweet (show backs of heads, hands, teachers, school work, etc.)

Those messages will be retweeted by @ABQschools (the district’s Twitter account) in hopes that #ADayInSchool goes viral.

If you have a Twitter account, we encourage you to retweet these positive messages or post some of your own.

We appreciate our legislators. We know they have a difficult task ahead of them, and we hope our positive messages will help provide encouragement as they make decisions that will impact the lives of our students, staff, and families.
