Teacher Appreciation Week

We celebrated and appreciated our teachers this week. The PTA announced that our Teacher Appreciation Week would be Dr. Seuss themed. They thought it would be fun if we decorated our teachers door. I am the Room Mom for Garrett's classroom this year. I knew I needed some help/ideas...Pinterest to the rescue. This is what I came up with! I had taken individual photos of each child, wearing a Cat In the Hat, hat. Each child signed their name on a hat and I adhered their photo. I made a sign that read "Hats off to you! Thank you for all you do."

We did something fun for Mrs. De Cuir each day! The first day we decorated her door. On the 2nd day, we brought her a vase of flowers, red carnations...her favorite!

On the 3rd day, we provided a sack lunch for her! Turkey sandwich, cookies, Sun Chips and a banana. She even had a Dr. Seuss themed water bottle.  We couldn't just give it to her in a brown bag. I decorated her lunch bag to carry on our theme. For the remaining days, we gave her a basket with some of her favorite treats: a new coffee mug, dark chocolate, protein bars and a gift card to Starbucks. On Friday, we gave her a gift card to her favorite restaurant. We sure hope she knew/knows how much we appreciate her! Garrett has loved being in her classroom this year.

The older boys wanted to let some of their teachers know how much they appreciated them. Between Tanner and Carter, they have 12 teachers. Yikes. I told them to pick a couple of their teachers and we made them cookies/gave them Bath & Body soap. This is what we came up with(Thank you Eighteen25 girls and another Pinterest find(the cookie tag)!

We had fun spoiling our teachers this week. We feel really blessed to live in such a great community, filled with awesome teachers. We have had wonderful teachers this year. Teachers who give their all to their jobs. Our boys are so lucky to spend time in their classrooms!
