Teacher Appreciation

Teacher Appreciation Day is fast approaching - May 8th to be exact. 

Time to think of something fun to give your child's teacher to recognize the job they do to guide, educate and care for your child while they are at school.  There is no reason to spend a ton of money or even spend a lot of time on it.  A simple hand-written note or a drawing from a younger child truly is sufficient.  But if you'd like to do something more and not just go out and buy a gift card and slip it in an envelope, here is a fun play on words with a few useful supplies.  You can tie a gift card to a restaurant, department store or spa to the outside tag if you really wanted to do something more.

Here is something I put together last fall.  Our school's PTO likes to leave a little something in each of the faculty and staff's mailboxes as a little "Welcome Back" to a new school year.  I was in charge of it this year.  This is something that you can do for an end-of-the-year gift as well.

Once again, the air hockey table turns into a useful work space!

Inside a cello bag you place:
  1. one highlighter
  2. one Sharpie marker
  3. one small hand sanitizer
  4. one calculator (I ordered in bulk and got some cute ones in school colors with our logo printed on them.)

You can change the little ditty for Teacher Appreciation to say:

According to my "calculations,"
It has been a "bright" year!
Just wanted to say, before we "clean" up,
Thanks for making Jennifer so "sharp!"

Thanks teachers for all that you do!
