Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week is officially celebrated this first week of May.  My boys' school, BBES, celebrated last week due to state testing this week.  Talk about a celebration!  One of my dearest friends coordinated the week with the theme of Team.  Every day the teachers came to school to enjoy a themed meal, gifts, goodies and well wishes.  The entire school was decorated in blow up sports balls, pennants, balloons and streamers.  The week ended with a pep rally featuring our school's mascot, Mr. T (Tiger), a parade of staff members and gifts galore for all teachers.

As room mom for my kindergartner's class, I helped coordinate flowers for the teachers and goodie bags with treats.  On the last day, all of the kids brought in $5 gift cards for the teachers.  Additionally, I wanted to recognize all of the staff who support my kids, such as: the P.E. teachers, Music and Art teachers, office and clinic staff, guidance, technology and SEARCH specialists, etc.  Not wanting to completely break the bank, I had my two boys help stamp the bags below and then fill them with apples, nuts, candy and pretzels.

These bags are certainly not my best, most creative artwork.  However, it's the stamped messsage that I hope they take to heart: YOU MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
