Teacher Appreciation Week:
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 4-7 and we'd like to invite all students and parents to show
extra gratitude to our amazing teachers and staff!
Here are our daily themes if you choose to join in. Just bring items to your teacher each
day. These items do not need to be expensive and you can pick and choose which days you join
in. There is a binder in the front office with a list of favorites for each teacher. This is not required
(participation is optional).
Monday - Bring a flower to your teacher
Tuesday - Wear your teacher's favorite color
Wednesday - Bring a school supply item (some favorites include colored sharpies, colored white
board markers, post-its) or a book (new or used) for your class library
Thursday - Surprise your teacher with something off her favorite list
We have also planned food for the teachers each day during the week and will be sending out a
school wide signup genius with items needed. There will also be an "Appreciation
Station" Monday and Tuesday during lunchtime for the students to handwrite notes to teachers
and staff to express their appreciation. These will be distributed to all staff on Thursday. Let's
show our incredible teachers and staff just how much we appreciate them!
