Teacher Appreciation Week May 7-11

Door decorations can be hung starting Friday, May 4 in the afternoon (starting around 3 pm). We will be decorating all school doors including Security, Office, Maintenance and the lunchroom, so if you are able, please consider decorating additional doors. Let us know which teachers/personnel you would like so that we can keep track.

Door dimensions are ‘84h by ‘36 w, if you want to avoid window ‘51 by ‘36 remember there will be a door knob
Paper suggestions: dollar stores, Amazon, Michaels and Joann's 

We will also be collecting gift cards for daily gift card presents to the teachers and organizing morning breakfasts each day. 

Christine Lee is organizing a “favorite things” for her homeroom teacher. The idea is that each day someone brings in one of the teacher’s favorite things:
Monday: Favorite coffee
Tuesday: Favorite flowers
Wednesday: Favorite snack food
Thursday: Favorite candle (smell)
Friday: Favorite dessert
Feel free to implement something similar in your classroom.

Let Molly or Trista know if you have any questions!
