Calling all public school educators, support staff and administrators!

Do you have all or a portion of February 15th-24th off for Winter Recess break? Join us in Ithaca, NY where the whole city goes on sale to celebrate YOU! That is right. Be our special guests as our VITs (Very Important Teachers) and bring your Teacher’s Pets with you (family, partner, children). Or, leave them home and make it a special Girl’s Trip. The choice is yours!

Hotels offer discounted rates. Restaurants offer discounts anywhere from a buy one get one meal to a free glass of wine, appetizer, or dessert. There are special events just for teachers, some of which include wine tastings, food tours, chocolate tastings, live music and ice cream making. Merchants in our beautiful pedestrian shopping area roll out the red carpet with discounts just for school employees. Attractions offer discounts and often FREE admission.

As a city home to Cornell University, Ithaca College, the Finger Lakes School of Massage and Tompkins Cortland Community College, we want to celebrate those of you that educate our future!
