Firstmark Celebrates Teachers | A Look Back

For Teacher Appreciation Week, we teamed up with our friends at Santikos Entertainment to celebrate the "reel stars" in the classroom. To show our appreciation for everything teachers do, Firstmark delivered 200 movie tickets to 20 schools across the city and distributed 1,500 vouchers for complimentary popcorn and discounted bowling passes to the schools nearest a financial center.

Here's a look back at some of the schools we visited during Teacher Appreciation Week:
