Did You Miss Teacher Appreciation Week?

May 26, 2021

It’s the end of the school year and you’re running back and forth between school, book club, Karate, baseball practice, dance recitals, work … and you realize you forgot all about teacher appreciation week. And that’s okay. To be fair, it probably wasn’t at the top of your priority list at the time. However, not to worry! There is never a bad time in the year to show your gratitude for all of the hard work, dedication, and passion that teachers provide to the world. Here are just a few simple yet effective ways to thank your favorite teachers for all they have done for you and/or your kiddos (year-round)!

  1. Write a letter
    a. Kindness means the world to teachers. Some words of encouragement are always the perfect push to remind teachers of why they do what they do.
  2. Volunteer
    a. Teachers are constantly relying on support from parents to keep school programs afloat. Volunteering your time and energy is an enormous help that keeps their efforts possible.
  3. Donate supplies
    a. All too often, teachers have to put their own money into providing supplies for their classrooms in order to help them effectively teach. Even if it’s just one set of crayons, any donation makes a world of a difference.
  4. Plant a tree
    a. If there is a teacher who has made a special difference in your child’s life, there is nothing more perfect to commemorate them than planting a tree in their honor. This is possible via the The Arbor Day Foundation, The Trees Remember, or even just in your own community!

How do you celebrate your favorite teachers throughout the year?
