Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week is here! Also known as National Teacher Week, it occurs on the first full week of May in the United States and Canada. Teacher Appreciation Day occurs on Tuesday of Teacher Appreciation Week.

If you want to do it up right, see if you can top the fine folks over at "Sweeten Your Day Events". In 2014, they threw a themed Hollywood Teacher Appreciation Week at their school, entitled "You're a Star".

Here are some of the things they did to make the teachers feel special:

  • We also sent home reminders sheets to all the students of the daily activities so they could come prepared.

Small trophies with the award add that extra touch!
Thank you to Jen H. for your wonderful ideas. I hope it inspires you all to have the BEST Teacher Appreciation Week ever!
