Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week is coming soon so it is time to show your appreciation to the teachers and staff that help teach your child. What should you do? There are many ways to show your appreciation, but here is a way that I found years ago online that I thought needed to be shared:

Simple Teacher Appreciation Gift

• Jar with lid
• Candy as explained below

For teacher appreciation week get a jar from the dollar store. Have your child make a card thanking the teachers and staff for all they have done and attach your child’s picture on it. Tape the card to the jar. Each day put a note on the jar lid and different candy inside. (You can also just do this for one day or give it the last day of class.)

Monday- Note: “You're my lifesaver! Thank you for all your hard work! From: _____” (Fill the jar with individual wrapped Life Savers candy.)

Tuesday- Note: “You planted the seeds of knowledge in me. From: _____” (Put individual bags of sunflower seeds in jar.)

Wednesday- Note: “You are worth a fortune! Thank you for all you do! From: _____” (Fill the jar with 100 Grand candy bars.)

Thursday- Note: “Hugs and kisses for everything you do! From: _____” (Fill the jar with Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses candy.)

Friday- Note: “You deserve a Carefree week-end. You are a much appreciated group of teachers and staff! From: _____” (Fill the jar with Carefree gum.)

*There are lots of other ideas that you can do. Just use your imagination and fill up the jar.
