I am seeing an interesting trend this year in Teacher Appreciation Week that both our schools (middle and elementary) just asked for gift cards that they could give out to the teachers. (Teacher Appreciation Week runs May 6 to 10.)
The middle school has asked for parents to buy $25 gift cards and just leave them in a collection box in the front office, and I guess they are going to distribute them among all the teachers.
The elementary school asked for the same thing.Now the elementary school said they will be doing lunches and other treats but we have not gotten a mass email about it so maybe a committee is handling that.
The schools here never do the daily stuff like our school in Gwinnett did. They never ask the kids to wear their teacher’s favorite colors, or bring in a flower or book on a different day.
So what are your schools asking for this year for Teacher Appreciation Week? Are they looking for gift cards too? Are they doing other things as well?
