Get Ready for Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Ideas

Class is now in session. Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8-12! If you can read this…thank a teacher.

Every day teachers educate, innovate, encourage, and touch the lives of millions of children across the world. They are real life superheroes. Help your child thank their teacher during Teacher Appreciation Week by sending them a thank you card, volunteering in the classroom or surprising them with a Mixed Bag or other gift.
