There are few people more deserving of appreciation than the everyday heroes who influence our children’s daily lives and affect who they will become. Since its origination in 1944, the purpose of National Teachers Day, now expanded to National Teachers Week, is to honor teachers for their contributions to children’s success—and simply thank them for caring.
Here are some thoughtful ways for you or your child to show teacher appreciation—without breaking the piggy bank:
- Store, Restaurant or Movie Gift Card
- Flowers, Plants or Seeds – for their seeds of wisdom.
- Symbolic Sweets – Lifesavers, Starbursts, Candy Kisses
- A Lovely Poem
- Handwritten Note – even if it’s in crayon!
And if you are a teacher reading this, we would like to offer our sincerest gratitude for the amazing work you do—all year long!
