Celebrating Teacher’s Appreciation Week

Life becomes hectic for families in May as children reach the end zone of the school year. There are concerts, plays, projects, and award ceremonies. As your child, and the entire school, go full force towards completing all their objectives for the year, it can be easy to overlook the positive impact teachers have made in our lives. 

In 1984, the National PTA association announced they would be dedicated a week each May to celebrate teachers across the nation. Thus, Teacher Appreciation Week was born! 

Want to ensure that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to express gratitude for your child’s teacher(s) this year? Here are some of our favorite ways to celebrate Teacher’s Appreciation Week:


Launch a Thank You Campaign

While there will always be parents who make sure to thank their teachers for all their hard work, the impact of organizing an official Thank You Campaign will truly leave an impression! Create an email list or group and bring together all your favorite planners to get started and then promote your campaign far and wide, using word of mouth, the local parent-teacher organization, and even the administrative staff of the school. You’ll want to start early to get a jump on this as last-minute efforts usually have less success.


Get the Class Together for a Special Thank You!

Whether the kids all write letters, poems, thank you notes, or sing a song – the class coming together for the teacher is a memorable moment. You can do this live or videotape something to be presented at a later time. 


Organize with a Local Business

Do any parents have connections with a local florist, coffee shop, restaurant, or movie theater? What local businesses might be interested in getting on board with a teacher gratitude campaign? This is great PR for the small business and the opportunity to do something on a grander scale for your favorite teachers.

Regardless of whether the gesture is large or small, we fully support you in your efforts to celebrate Teacher’s Appreciation Week. Our teachers deserve respect, recognition, and support for doing one of the hardest, and most important, jobs of all.
