Teacher Appreciation Week Nears

posted 4/29/21 -- Teacher Appreciation Week is celebrated during the first full week of May, which makes it May 3 through 7 this year.

It is a wonderful time to let your child’s teacher know how grateful you are for all he or she does. Normally we would suggest things like volunteering in your child’s class or even a hearty handshake with a thank you, but these are still not possible this year. Here are some ideas of no contact/no cost ways to show your appreciation.

Use a window marker or shoe polish to write a special message on your car window for your teacher to see during drop-off or pick-up.

Work with your child to write a letter about what he or she likes about the teacher. Many templates are available online so you can just fill in the blanks.

Create a video to send to your teacher through ClassTag. Let your child talk about his or her favorite memories from this school year.

Send a thank you note to school with your child, or even send a fun e-card.

Our teachers have done an incredible job this year, both in class and online. We hope you will take a moment to acknowledge them!
