So, things have been so hectic lately that I haven't been taking pictures or posting everything that we're doing for Teacher Appreciation Week. Friday we had a very nice luncheon for all the teachers and staff. We served chicken salad, from a local catering place, on croissants with lettuce and tomatoes available for their sandwich. We had a variety of chips and cookies to add to their meal, plus either water or Diet Coke (that's all they drink!). Parents took over lunch duty so the teachers could enjoy a quiet lunch. Everything was set up in the library, flowers on the tables, lights were dimmed and even had some soft music playing. The teachers were so appreciative of the lunch, but even more, that they were able to get away for just a little bit...to eat in peace!
Starting tomorrow, we have a different gift for teachers and staff everyday. Tomorrow, we are giving everyone water bottles with a lemonade packet attached.
We had sent a note home with every child, asking for $1 towards Teacher Appreciation. We had a sad return of only $88...out of 600-some kids. I am not sure if families just couldn't afford it, or if they just didn't care. Either way, it's a sad statement on how teachers and all their hard work is simply not appreciated.
Let's see your pictures...what have you done or what are you planning to do? I'd love to get some new ideas!
