Celebrate your child’s teachers virtually this year!
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 4 – 8, 2020. We can show our teachers and school administrators how much we appreciate all they have done for our students throughout the year – both in school and out.
Below are 5 ideas for celebrating Teachers from a distance:
Just Say “Thank You”
A heartfelt sincere note from a student or parent is always a perfect way to thank a teacher. Have your student write a thank you to their teachers that can be mailed in a card to the school or sent as an email. If you’re mailing a card, join your child in making a homemade card. A little paint, colored paper, and a handprint can go a long way to making something extra special. Need some inspiration? Try here.
Rocks of Joy
Painting rocks and leaving them throughout your neighborhood for others to find has seen a resurgence during stay at home. You and your child can also paint some special rocks and take a picture of them and share them via email during Teacher Appreciation Week. Include notes of appreciation, like “You rock!” “Thanks a ton!” and “You’re a rockin’ teacher!” If you need some inspiration, try here.
Decorate Your Door
People across the country are using art to stay connected and to speak to one another in this time of stay-at-home orders – to celebrate their high school seniors and college grads, to show support for essential workers working during the COVID-19, to raise school spirit, and to give neighbors something to drive around and search for.
You can also decorate your door to honor teachers during this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week. Decorate your door with memorabilia from the year and notes of thanks and support to the teachers and school administrators who dedicated themselves to your student this year. Then, take a picture and post it to your school’s Facebook page.
Help your child create a video recalling some of the best moments of this past school year that you can then email to teachers and post on your school’s social media. Need some inspiration? WeVideo has some samples as well as steps for making your video.
Don’t forget your school’s support staff! Parents can join in with personal email notes of support to school administrators, maintenance personnel, front desk staff, and others who have been so helpful throughout the year.
