Our school celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week this week. I am so grateful for our teachers! Our school district has faced severe budget cuts over the last few years that have resulted in huge class sizes with almost all teacher's aides being laid off. I think our teachers do a fabulous job even though they are asked to do more and more with less and less.
I am VP of our Parent Teacher Organization. This week we planned a breakfast for the teachers on Monday and a lunch on Wednesday. We had a Cinco de Mayo theme and served breakfast burritos and taco salads for lunch. We asked the kids to bring a flower for their teachers on Monday, a sweet on Tuesday and a kind note on Wednesday.
Every morning this week, I placed candies with cute little sayings in the teacher's lounge.
I purchased some inexpensive geraniums. To dress up the plastic pots, I used Mod Podge to attach some zebra crepe paper I had on hand.
Here are the sayings that I made. I just glued them to a popsicle stick and popped them in the candy bowls. Feel free to use them if you like!
There are so many cute teacher appreciation ideas out there. Here are a few of my favorites:
